SOUTH FORK– On Saturday, August 3, the Greater South Fork Community Foundation Fund of Pikes Peak Community Foundation made grants to two important causes in the South Fork community.
The South Fork Fire Rescue Ladies Auxiliary works year-round to ensure the community’s first responders have the food, equipment and financial support they need to operate. Currently, the Women Behind the Boots recognized the need to protect South Fork firefighters with bullet proof vests and the Greater South Fork Community Foundation responded by making a $3,200 grant. They will be able to protect four firefighters with this grant, as each vest costs approximately $800.
The GSFCF also granted $405 to the South Fork Fire Rescue Ladies Auxiliary to help in continued fund raising for a new defibrillator.
