To our Community:
Below, you will find a PDF with regards to a letter from the Chief of Department explaining why we did not send out the 2020 Fund Drive materials and the need to continue with it this year.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has effected all of us and the Hauppauge Fire Department felt the time was not right to solicit for donations last year.
We have now decided to continue with it this year. Within the next week or so, you will receive the fund drive materials in your mailbox. We hope you can continue to help us with your generous donation as in the past.
Thank you, as always, for your support.
