PINE/STRAWBERRY FUEL REDUCTION COMMITTEE
NEEDS YOUR HELP TO BRING BACK
A BRUSH PICK UP PROGRAM
Pine/Strawberry Fuel Reduction, Inc. is starting a donation drive to raise the money necessary to bring back a brush pick up program. Grants for this type of program are no longer available. If successful, P/SFR will team with the Pine-Strawberry Fire Department and their brush pick up equipment to reinstate this vital program for our communities.
We know that reducing the fuel load on our properties is a major factor in reducing the catastrophic wild fires we’ve seen in our state and other western states. The previous brush pick up program allowed the Pine and Strawberry communities a way to remove the brush and needle/leaf litter that accumulates each year on our properties. With the pick up program the last several years, our residents rolled up their sleeves and thinned tons of fuel from our two communities.
We need to bring a brush pick up program back.
Our goal is to raise $60,000 to fund the program. Your donation will help this effort. There are three ways to donate:
Use one of the two PayPal donation buttons on the right.
The “DONATE” button will allow you to make a single donation of any amount using your credit card or PayPal account.
The “SUBSCRIBE” button will allow you to make a monthly donation of various amounts starting with as little as $5 per month.
A third way is to mail us a check payable to Pine/Strawberry Fuel Reduction, Inc. and send to:
P/S Fuel Reduction, P.O. Box 67, Pine, AZ 85544
For updates on fuel reduction activities and brush pick up scheduling, include your email address. We will not share your email address with any other agency or individual.
If you have questions or comments, please use our “Contact Us” page or call our Hotline at 928-970-0713
