The six elected Members of the Orange Board of Finance are sponsoring a program to help raise money for the Orange Volunteer Fire Department.

The Fire Truck $50K Challenge is 100% integrated with and supported by the First Selectman and Orange Volunteer Fire Association (OVFA) Leadership.

Due to the Covid-19 situation, and current edicts from the State of CT, the Orange Volunteer Fireman’s Association (OVFA) canceled its annual Carnival in August 2020.

The OVFA relies on the carnival for funding the costs associated with its operations. In particular, the OVFA spends $50K annually for an updated truck purchased recently.

The Firetruck Challenge’s aim is to Collect volunteer contributions to support the OVFA in light of the carnival being canceled.

The GOAL: 

• $50K (or more) to support the OVFA

• All money contributed (100%) goes directly to the OVFA


For companies and organizations that can afford it, there are three sponsorship levels

  • The “2% CLUB”  – $1,000 donation
  • GOLD – $2,500 donation
  • PLATINUM – $5,000

Orange is a close-knit community where we help each other. Now it’s time for us all to step up and support our volunteer firefighters.  

Please consider a generous donation to get us past this time.  No amount is too small.
