If you post that information, it will surely help to get donations to the right place.

I hope it isn't a "Go Fund Me" site because they take a percentage of the proceeds.
I will be donating at the car wash tomorrow.

I don't know. I only know from reading the article. perhaps you could go to go fund me page and send message to the mother? or you can go get your car washed today.

Just to be accurate, I don't think that Go Fund Me donations are tax deductible.

GoFundMe doesn't take any fee for. However the credit card processor will charge a fee (which doesn't go to GoFundMe). It's the same fee that is charged when you use a credit card in a store, but the store eats it. But GoFundMe is not selling anything so they have no way to eat the credit card processor fee. Most charities work this way.

details are here:

I went up there today, around noon. 3 or 4 cars waiting in front of me. The line moved fairly quickly. When it was my turn, there was 6 cars behind me. Did a nice job on the wash, but the windshield was a mess when I got home. The firemen looked like they were having a good time. If they have another one, closer to TV, I will definitely go again.----Damn bugs on the windshield.

Soooooo Where do you send the donations and don't tell me it is one of those phony fund raising companies like the cops use. They lead you to believe they are members of the police and are raising money for the Police Benevolent Fund and then take 1/2 of the money. I want to donate to the family, but I want it all to go to them.
I read the article and really feel badly. Think of all the causes and time spend on fund raising, and sending supplies here and there in TV. What about this fire fighter who is working in TV. Someone please post a place to send the donations. Thanks.

I sent an email to the Public Safety Department immediately after reading the article asking where I can send or deliver a check. I don’t use GoFundMe for several reasons. I have still not received a reply from them. I will post the info when/if I do.
