A Topeka, Kansas-based organization called the “Volunteer Firefighter Alliance” has been making solicitations via phone and mail in Monroe to raise money for its annual fund drive.
The post said the Stepney, Monroe Volunteer Fire Department, No.1 Inc. and Stevenson Volunteer Fire Company do hold an annual fund drive each year, that will ask for a donation addressed exactly to the respective fire department in your district, and have a local mailing address.
According to the Federal Trade Commission, simply having the words “police” or “firefighter” in an organization’s name doesn’t mean police or firefighters are members of the group.
