(A Private Non-profit Association)

Volunteers are reconstructing the home destroyed by fire in New Hampton, on Kelley Pond Road.  Local area firefighters, 3 electricians and several carpenters have begun working on the home to make it livable to allow the young children (ages 4 to 12) to return to the home for Christmas.   The house has been gutted on the inside and new wiring (donated) has been installed by electricians that have volunteered their time.  Another local company is donating the materials and installation for new chimney pipe.  Companies have donated the supplies to this point and they may continue to come in, but currently funds are needed for these building supplies; sheetrock (est. $2000.), insulation (estimate $1000), windows (estimate $400), Doors (estimated $800) and if possible flooring supplies.   The Firefighter’s Association is accepting donations in order to purchase the needed supplies.  If you would like to help, please send in your donation check payable to “New Hampton Firefighter’s Association” and note that it is for this specific project and mail it to New Hampton Firefighter’s Association, P.O.
