Since being founded in 1949, and chartered in 1957, the Goodwill Fire Company No. 1 Ladies’ Auxiliary has provided 65 years of comfort and support to our Trexlertown Volunteers, as well as outside fire companies and community agencies. Our auxiliary group is dedicated to helping fulfill the monetary needs of the fire company, as well as provide the sustenance and emotional support for our firefighters during an emergency situation. We have an active membership including mothers, students, seniors, professional women and men, which gives us the chance to share new ideas and enthusiasm.
The auxiliary supports the fire company by providing the team with refreshments at extended fire calls, and helping with the annual Fastnacht sale, Holiday Santa Run, and monthly breakfast. Our community outreach includes manning an emergency shelter at the firehouse, UMT Emergency Preparedness Day, and coordinating the Miller Blood Drive twice a year. Monetary support to the fire team is provided through fundraising efforts with an annual craft show in November, monthly Hoagie sales, special event food sales, Auxiliary cookbook and our monthly Breakfast bake sales.
Monthly meetings are held every 4th Wednesday evening, at 7:00 pm, in the Fire Company Social Hall. New members are welcome!
