If you see fire trucks in your neighborhood and firefighters going door-to-door, don’t worry, nothing is wrong, they’re just there making it easy for you to obtain raffle tickets for the annual Orange Volunteer Firemen’s Carnival.
In past years, the firefighters were able to mail the tickets and residents would return the stubs along with a check. But then, last year, the postal service said “No, you can’t do that.” and the fire department took a big hit.
This year’s top prize is a $5,000 Visa Card, second prize $4,000 … and 8 other desirable prizes to win, all for the cost of a $5 raffle ticket.
The proceeds go to the Orange Volunteer Fire Department for their expenses, such as, equipment and training.
So when you see the firemen coming to your door, grab your wallet and a pen and buy as many tickets as you can to help them out and show that you appreciate these highly trained volunteers for their service to the community.
