In any business, a network of partnerships turn success into a reality. This is doubly true for non-profit organizations! We could not effect change in our community without the assistance of our generous business partners, event sponsors, and supportive community members! Below are just some examples of how these amazing individuals and organizations have helped our mission:
Gratis FD Gratis EMS, and Gratis PD hosted the first-annual Party in the Park in 2019. This was a fun event for FREE to members of the community including free food, live music, barrel train, and many more attractions. Events like this help public safety organizations build lasting relationships with community members!
Gratis Fire Department hosted a community outreach event, their annual Fire Prevention night, in 2019. This event included new events and demonstrations, including a grain bin rescue demonstration by the Gratis FD Rope Rescue Team. A very special thank you goes to Bell Family Grain Farms for donating the grain and bin!
Gratis Fire Department partnered with West Elkton-Gratis Township Fire Department and Gratis EMS to host a community outreach event, their annual Santa Run!
We would like to thank Miami Lodge #89 and Gratis Eden Lodge #147 for partnering with us to purchase toys and candy for kids on our route!
