Martin VFD Gearing Up for Fundraiser


Lauderdale County, Miss. A local volunteer fire department is preparing for its biggest fundraiser of the year.

This Saturday, the volunteer fire department in Martin will host a 5K run and one-mile fun run. As part of the fundraising effort, arts and crafts will be sold along with fried and barbecue chicken plates. Organizers say all of the money raised will be used to purchase needed equipment and to make further improvements for the department.

"Well, last year we raised right at $12,000," Jeremy Pogue says. "So, this year would be great to beat that, but if we get anywhere close to that we'll be satisfied."

The Martin Volunteer Fire Department will host the big fundraiser throughout the day this coming Saturday in front of the fire station.
