Fundraiser - Lex FF Aid & Relief Fund

The Lexington Firefightes Aid and Relief Association has been an active organization dedicated to the well being of its members and supportive of the community for over 30-years. Our funding comes from donations, a majority of which we receive during our annual appeal now being conducted.

This association is adminstered by members of the LFD and was created to assist Lexington Firefighters along with their families in times of need, including illness or long-term injury and disability. Funds have also been used to grant scholarships to graduating seniors at Lexington High School and children of Lexington Firefighters for post-secondary education programs. The association also supports extracurricular activities at the high school and makes contributions to various local charities and civic organizations.

The direct mail appeal ensures that 100% of donations received will go directly to the assocation. The letter you received in the mail will be the only request you receive. The Lexington Firefighters Aid and Relief Assocations does not solict donations using vendors or phone solications.

Your contribution is greatly appreciated by the assocation and all of the Lexington Firefighters. Thank you for all your past support and consideration for this year's fundrasier.
