If you want to donate to an organization that does specific, concrete good deeds, this is the one! My wife and I have had to make two 911 calls for child-related emergencies, one for each of our young sons. The AVFD showed up within minutes for each. Words cannot express our gratitude for their courage and professionalism. There are times I have made donations to organizations and wondered where the money goes. With AVFD, I know exactly whom I am supporting.
