Help Coolbaugh Firefighters This Weekend By Saving Money










A big box retailer is once again extending a hand to help out a group of firefighters in Monroe County.

For the third time— the Walmart Distribution Center has donated enough new items to fill the Coolbaugh Township Firehouse’s Hall on Laurel Drive from one end to the other. The firefighters plan to sell the items which include everything from soap, Christmas decorations, bicycles — basically everything Walmart offers except food. They will be discounted 50 percent or more at a garage sale tomorrow and Sunday. The hope is to use the profit to pay for a new fire station on Route 196.

Coolbaugh Township Assistant Fire Chief Tomas Keane says,  “All the money that we made so far is going to the land development which is the engineers, the soil testing, all the paperwork, the permits from the PennDOT, the stuff you don’t see in the background before you put a brick in the ground. So we have raised year to date I believe just over 80 thousand dollars toward that total, which is a larger total than 80 thousand but we put the time and effort in here to make sure that the burden doesn’t go on the taxpayers.”

Just show up Saturday from noon till 6PM and Sunday noon till 4PM. Volunteers accept cash and credit cards. Just bring your own bag.
