LACY LAKEVIEW, Texas – The Lacy Lakeview Fire Department is trying to raise thousands of dollars. They will be selling raffle tickets now through April 2, raffle tickets for the tablet will be $10 each and $20 for the grill. There will be three prizes, a Triton charcoal/gas grill, an Android tablet and a Walmart gift card. All proceeds will go to their new Brush truck.
“We are a voluntary service, we are grateful for everything we receive, support your local fire department, they need it here, especially with times of COVID and everything,” says firefighter Tomás Cardoza.
Dave’s Burger Ban is donating 20% of its proceeds this weekend to the Lacy Lakeview Volunteer Fire Department.
“We have had three fundraisers and a portion of all sales today and tomorrow will go to us firefighters and basically what he will do is finish this brush truck that we need” , says Cardoza. .
The old Brush truck has been in service for over 17 years and the fire department needs a new one.
“He’s actually going to be used to fight grass fires, wildfires, he’ll be out there in our district, he’ll help with whatever we need right now,” Cardoza says.
Lacy Lakeview’s goal is to raise ten thousand dollars to complete the Brush Truck.
“The old truck will still be in service, it will be a reserve, but it will be a main one that will stay in our city, the other will go to other districts and also help the county,” Cardoza explains.
