PC Beverage donation 'Boot' raises $10,000
Saturday July 29, 2017 - Firefighters recognize a local business as a Partner in Public Safety
PC Beverage donation boot raises $10-thousand to benefit East Allen Township Volunteer Fire Department. On July 29, a group of firefighters set up displays of fire apparatus and equipment at PC Beverage, 5966 Nor-Bath Blvd, East Allen Township, Bath.
We wanted to recognize and extend our thanks and appreciation to Chick & Liz Leibig, the owners of PC Beverage for ‘The Boot’. Back in late 2009 Chick asked the Fire Department if we were interested in placing a firefighter’s boot at the checkout counter for customers to throw their loose change or donations into.
Needless-to-say we said yes, and the boot has done very well ever since. By May of 2014 the boot had collected $5,000, and this July the boot surpassed the $10,000 mark, and is still going strong.
Of course we also want to extend our gratitude to the many generous customers of PC Beverage who regularly contribute to our support. If all of this weren’t enough, Chick also donates water, soft drinks and ice for use at emergency scenes and public events at the fire station.
Chick & Liz Leibig and PC beverage, you are truly Partners in Public Safety.
