On June 11, 2023, residents of the Falcons Landing Community presented the Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad and the Sterling Volunteer Fire Company with a donation of over $92,000.
Each year for the past 25 years, Falcons Landing residents have held an internal fund drive to gather donations for Sterling Rescue and Sterling Fire. The donations are split evenly between the organizations. Sterling Rescue uses these donations to purchase state-of-the-art equipment and enhance our ability to serve and support the Sterling community.
Falcons Landing is a senior living community of retired and honorably discharged military officers from all branches of service, and senior federal employees, their spouses and surviving spouses. This year, Fund Drive Chairperson Gene Baldrate presented Sterling Rescue Chief Kathy Harasek and Sterling Fire Chief David Short with this generous donation at an Ice Cream Social. The Ice Cream Social featured ice cream, baked goods and tours of a Sterling Rescue Advanced Life Support Ambulance, an Advanced Life Support Chase Vehicle and a Sterling Fire tower truck.
Sterling Rescue greatly appreciates this donation and would like to express our thanks to Falcons Landing residents. We are honored to support your community, whose members have selflessly served our Country in military and federal civilian roles. We greatly appreciate your continued support of Sterling Rescue and the kind words you shared about our service. We look forward to continuing this great relationship and supporting you in the future.
