Lynchburg Fallen Firefighter Brick Memorial Renovation Project
Hosted by Fundraising Brick
Since 1883, twenty-four firefighters in Lynchburg have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the line-of-duty, serving fellow man, saving lives, and protecting property. In the City’s Miller Park stands a memorial fountain in honor of these individuals, ensuring that our community will never forget the sacrifices each of them made. That very fountain is in need of significant improvements and we are respectfully asking for your assistance in this worthy and noble restoration effort.
In cooperation with the Lynchburg Fire Department and the Lynchburg Department of Public Works, the Lynchburg Fire Foundation is trying to raise $50,000 in order to match a dollar-for-dollar grant through the Lynchburg Parks & Recreation Department. Our effort is to reach this goal by October 1, 2017. We anticipate Phase 1 of this project to begin soon after our Annual Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service, which will be held on October 1, 2017.
Only through the generous contributions of individuals like you will we be able to reach our goal of $50,000 and earn the matching grant award. Please consider honoring the men who have given their lives while protecting and serving our community.
