Volunteering and Being a Good Neighbor
Many Montgomery County residents, seeing their neighbors and members of the community in distress, are looking to help and volunteer during these difficult times. Learn ways you can help.
Donate a Meal to Volunteer Firefighters
The fire service has a long tradition of preparing meals together but during this emergency they have insufficient time to shop and cook. If you are a restaurant or caterer who would like to prepare meals for out on-duty personnel, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information.
Community members interested in donating a meal can easily donate money online, we cannot accept home prepared food at this time. All money donated will be used for meals.
