Local fire departments could see boost in donations if new bill is approved in PA

21 February 2024- Rep. Michael Stender (R-Northumberland/Montour) announced today he has introduced legislation that would give individuals the option to donate to their local fire departments when renewing their driver’s licenses or vehicle registration.

“Pennsylvania drivers have the great ability to check a box and make a donation to different organizations when renewing their driver’s license or vehicle registration,” said Stender. “While local communities show support to their fire departments in various ways, this would be another opportunity for residents to demonstrate their support and donate to their local fire department.”

The State Fire Commissioner would be responsible for disbursing these donations to the local fire departments of the contributing residents on a quarterly basis.
