[ARCHIVED] Fire Dept Receives Grant from Walmart

Fire Grant TCNews Flash

This morning, the Walmart Roanoke - North Highway 377 store held a Re-Grand Opening and presented the Trophy Club Fire Department with a Local Community Grant check for $3,000. 

Ms. Anita Otterson worked tirelessly to apply for and receive the Local Community Grant on behalf of the Town and the Fire Department.  The funds will be used for a fire safety calendar program that will be implemented in October during National Fire Safety Month.  TC firefighters will visit local elementary schools (grades K-3) with fire safety messages throughout October.  Students will be encouraged to create a poster for a topic firefighters discussed in their class.  Winning posters will be turned in to a 2020 fire safety calendar that will encourage and remind families to stay safe. Calendars will be distributed to Trophy Club elementary school children.

  • Local Community grants range from a minimum of $250 to a maximum of $5,000.
