Manchester Frum Community hopes to Raise funds for new Volunteer Fire Chief Vehicle [PHOTOS]

When Yehuda Fryer learned that the Ridgway Fire Department Chief’s vehicle is over 10 years old and constantly breaking down, he decided to do something about it.

Yehuda, the founder of the new Jewish community of Manchester Township, has established relationships with all the local governing bodies in town, and sees first hand how the town is looking to accomodate the new neighbors.

“For example, Fire Chief Mike Trimarchi is one of the sweetest people on earth,” says Fryer, “he’s known to help out any family on Shabbos, knowing there are things we cannot do on Shabbos.”

Recently, the local all-volunteer fire station stationed between both Jewish areas, reached out to Yehuda Fryer to see if he can assist in perhaps obtaining a new Chief’s vehicle.

Yehuda and local Askonim responded with getting to work on a fundraiser to raise the necessary funds for the vehicle, which is expected to cost approximately $75,000.

“This is very important for us to show our appreciation for all they for us,” Fryer said.

The fundraiser is expected to launch in the coming days.
