Cox’ Store Volunteer Fire Department Hosts Fish Fry Fundraiser
COMANCHE COUNTY, Okla. (KSWO) - Cox’s Store Volunteer Fire Department hosted its annual Fish Fry Fundraiser Saturday.
Firefighters spent the week getting ready for the event and prepared the food Saturday morning.
Seafood lovers made donations at the door and chose from a variety of sides and desserts to pair with the fish.
The fundraiser helps to supplement the department’s operating costs for the year, along with the approximately $1000 to $1400 they receive from the county each month.
Cox’s Store Volunteer Fire Department Chief Collin Langford said with rising fuel costs and unexpected expenses they need a little more to get by.
”This is our biggest fundraiser of the year. This is what keeps us going, this is what allows us to roll our trucks out the door every day to take care of our citizens,” said Collin.
The Cox’s Store VFD has served the community since 1965, and the fish fry tradition has been around for almost 30 years.
