The Storm Lake Police and Fire Departments recently announced they are the recipients of two generous donations of $1,000 each from Bil Mar Foods in Storm Lake.

On Friday, Sept. 29, Raymond Team and Dale Carver presented Public Safety Director Mark Prosser with the checks.

"This generous donation will be used to acquire fire prevention materials and safety equipment for the Volunteer Fire Department," stated Fire Chief Mike Jones.

Captain Bob Swanson also stated, "The funds provided to the police department will be put towards the acquisition of a new police dog in the spring of 2001."

Both the fire and police departments have been the recipients of donations from Bil Mar in the past.

Bil Mar also made donations to the Storm Lake Gateway project, the Storm Lake Chamber of Commerce and the Storm Lake Community Chests.
