We just heard from a local business that they were solicited via PHONE for donations for Matagorda Fire Department. We do have our BBQ coming up, but we only ask for donations in person (never over the phone). If you’ve received one of these calls please let us know. Our BBQ fundraiser coming up & Gail & the firefighters you know will be coming by in person. If you ever have a question please let us know. ... See MoreSee Less
