EMS Fundraiser Seeks Your Support
Wednesday, December 9, 2009 • Posted December 9, 2009

We invite you to support "Operation Christmas Greeting"; Mason County’s annual fundraiser for their EMS. For new participants, it works like this! A donation is made to the "Greeting" fund and your name is listed on a full page Greeting Card that appears in this paper’s Christmas edition on December 23rd. Friday, December 18th, is the deadline this year to make your donation.

To donate to one of the "Greeting" accounts that are set up at each of the three Mason banks, please, fill out a coupon like the one below or pick one up at the bank. Fill in your listing(s) exactly as you wish it to appear on the "Greeting" and make your check payable to "Operation Christmas Greeting". Deposit it with the coupon attached, at one of the banks. You may, also, mail your donation. Address your envelope to: "Operation Christmas Greeting", the name of the bank (First State Bank, Mason National Bank or The Commercial Bank) Mason, TX 76856.

Every penny raised each year is designated for the betterment of their equipment. This year the funds will be used to provide each of the three ambulances with a Broslow Pediatric Advance Life Saving Support Kit. These kits are individually packed for different infant and youth age groups. They are self-contained with provisions pre-measured for the total emergency need of the patient. Each kit is priced at $1,200.00 and three kits are needed, one for each ambulance; the total price will be $3,600.00.

As with all fundraisers, they are as successful as the number of participants are large in number. All amounts add up and each donation is appreciated. Every year I hear comments from the EMS personnel and volunteers on how much they appreciate your support.

Mason is so blessed to have the EMS employees and volunteers who come to our aid when that accident or emergency does occur. We do them a big service in helping them to be the best equipped to assist in saving lives.

We continue to ask for your support for this most worthy association. We hope your name is on the Texas-size greeting card. "Thank You"!
