Borger FD receives grant from Agrium

November 4, 2011

The Borger Fire Department received a grant from Agrium that went toward the purchase of a Polaris UTV.
The grant, in the amount of $25,000, covers the costs of the UTV, which is a six-wheel vehicle equipped for rescue and wildland fire suppression.
The vehicle has the ability to access many places that the department’s larger apparatus can not, so it can transport patients and equipment through the city’s industrial plants and provide quick access to these areas.

Drop boxes available for box-tops and pull tabs for local school fundraising efforts

November 4, 2011

Box-top and pull-tab drop boxes are available at designated areas in Borger as part of fundraising efforts taking place by local schools.
The PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) have begun to organize drop boxes for box-tops and aluminum pull tabs at Pizza Duo and United.
For every box-top given the school receives $.10.
Children from Paul Belton, Gateway, and Crockett schools will collect aluminum pull tabs to give to the Ronald McDonald House.
Lydia Edwards, a parent from the PTO stated, “It’s a good way to teach the children to contribute charity and raising money.”
