Rain Barrel Fundraising Drive for the Canadian Fire Fighter’s Museum

In Community

It may be closed, but that doesn’t mean the Canadian Fire Fighter’s Museum has stopped working.
The Chair of fundraising for the museum, John Appleman said they are now in the process of having a fundraiser for expenses selling rain barrels.
“They are the most environmentally friendly rain barrels because they are re-purposed food containers.”
“They are food grade plastic, which is the best source to collect water in especially if you’re using for a vegetable garden or organic gardening.”
They come with a spout at the bottom, a mosquito net and a overflow port at the back just in case there are multiple barrels to join together.
Appleman said a portion of the proceeds go to the CFFM so they can help with costs for the transition when they find a new home for the museum.
“We have all kinds of expenses still even though we aren’t open.”
The barrels cost $55 and can be pre-ordered by going to rainbarrel.ca/CFFM.
Orders must be placed by April 19 and the date for pickup is on April 28 at 10 Robertson Street in Port Hope.
