Levy Fire Dept. launches fireworks fundraiser


With 2015 right around the corner, the Levy Fire Department in Hardeeville is making efforts to bring in the new year with a blast, as well as raise money.

They began their semi-annual fireworks fundraiser over the Talmadge Bridge on Highway 17 on Saturday. 

Each year, the money raised helps the department purchase new equipment and fire trucks, in order to provide the best fire service to the Levy community.

"It is not only for the fire department, it is for the community, because what we get goes back into the community. So, if you do not buy fireworks, we cannot buy equipment. We cannot do what we need to do. We need people to come out and buy the fireworks, and we will use the money for the fire department and the community, said Fire Chief, Doug Graham.

Selling fireworks is their largest fundraiser, and this year Graham says they need as much support as they can get.

The fireworks stand is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. until next Thursday.
