BOONTON — The Ladies Auxiliary of the Boonton Fire Department successfully held a Coat Drive on Saturday, November 4, to support the First Presbyterian Church of Boonton. The community stepped forward, donating new and gently worn coats, along with a variety of winter accessories such as hats, gloves, and scarves. The drive concluded with a significant collection of 33 bags filled with these winter essentials.

The Ladies Auxiliary, a dedicated group comprised of volunteers over the age of 18, is known for their unwavering support to firefighters by providing necessities like water and refreshments at fire scenes. Beyond this, they extend their community support through regular contributions to the local food pantry each month.

The drive concluded with a significant collection of 33 bags filled with these winter essentials.

Their dynamic fundraising initiatives, which include a 20-week raffle, the engaging Tricky Tray, and a festive Annual Labor Day Carnival, serve multiple community-benefiting purposes. These activities not only raise funds to grant scholarships to high school students in Boonton but also to deliver enjoyable crafts during the celebrated Boonton Day. Proceeds are further utilized to acquire critical equipment for the fire department, notably automated external defibrillators (AEDs), enhancing their life-saving capabilities.

Fostering a sense of community, the Auxiliary members frequently visit the NJ Fireman’s Home, sharing joy through games of Bingo with the residents, and they exhibit their solidarity with the firefighters by joining in local parades.

The regular monthly meetings of the Ladies Auxiliary reflect a strong, continuous dedication to their cause and the betterment of the Boonton community.
