Atlanta Volunteer Fire Dept. receives MFA Oil Foundation Grant

The MFA Oil Foundation has awarded a grant to the Atlanta Volunteer Fire Department to assist with purchasing 2 Garage door replacements.  The new doors will allow new, larger equipment to be stored at the station to better serve the fire safety needs of local communities.

“We appreciate the work of MFA Oil in assisting our small-town department in this way. These new doors will help us put equipment in the station that is currently stored offsite because of size. We also want to think our board chairman for processing the grant application,” said board member Aaron Baker. “Volunteer fire departments are only as strong as the folks that are serving them and we are proud to have a good program here in Atlanta.”

The MFA Oil Foundation provides support to nonprofit organizations that are working to improve communities where MFA oil has a significant concentration of members and employees. Since it was established in 1998, the MFA Oil Foundation has awarded more than one million dollars in grants.

MFA Oil President and CEO Mark Fenner described the MFA Oil Foundation as “a program that allows our company to give support back to the rural communities that are the foundation of our business. The grants the Foundation awards help support many youth programs and organizations active in addressing and solving community problems and improving the quality of life.”
