The College Mound Community Workers recently presented a check for $2,000 to the Macon County Rescue Squad.
“It is important to work with our community volunteer departments,” says Lavern Milhollin, treasurer, of the College Mound Community Workers.
Denny Brown, president and Milhollin, treasurer, presented the check to Jimmy Maloney, president of the rescue squad.
Maloney said that the donation will be used to help purchase and replace badly needed rescue equipment. “The squad does not receive any tax money support and relies on donations from groups and individuals to operate,” said Maloney.
“There is no better place for groups to donate,” said Brown. “The money stays locally and we know that the rescue squad will always be there in the time of need when called.”
The College Mound Community Workers support their community in many ways:
•Providing welcome signs upon entering College Mound.
•Help restore the College Mound Community Building.
•Building the first helicopter pad in Macon County.
•Donated generated light plant, blowers and chain saws to the Bevier Fire Protection District.
•Also provide help to fire victims or anyone else in our community with a severe need.
They are the supported by the community at their chili & vegetable soup dinner and pork steak dinners in November and at the north concession stand at the Macon Demolition Derby.
The next fundraiser for the College Mound Community Workers is a pork steak dinner on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Bevier Fire Station #2, located in College Mound.
