The Pipestone Ambulance Association will be holding our 33rd annual Chili Feed Fundraiser on Saturday, March 4th, 2023. The 2023 Chili Feed will be held in DRIVE-THRU form at the Pipestone County Emergency Services Building located at 811 5th St SE in Pipestone, MN. Please look for signs & line up facing South on 9th Ave SE.
The drive-thru supper will be held from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM. Our menu will feature our great award-winning chili (mild or hot), amazing chicken noodle soup, grilled ham & cheese sandwiches, & dessert. Quarts of Chili & Soup will also be available to purchase for $5 each (preorders appreciated).
Delivery within Pipestone City limits WILL be available from 4-5pm, but we ask that you call us at 507-825-1170 before 5pm on March 3rd to place a delivery order.
Our project for 2023 is purchasing three new Stryker Stair-PRO stair chairs to replace our three aging stair chairs & three new pulse oximeters to replace the old ones that are in each ambulance. The Stryker Stair-PRO is a piece of equipment utilized in safely moving patients out of small spaces (hallways, bathrooms, sharp corners, etc.) & down stairs. It has a “stair tread” system to allow for controlled descent of stairs, making it far safer for both patients & the attending EMS personnel, reducing lifting & back strain. The pulse oximeters needing replacement are used on nearly every patient to measure the pulse rate & oxygen level of the blood, which the EMS personnel then use to help determine prompt treatment.
Our local United Way of Pipestone County continuously supports us and has kindly allocated $500 towards our 2023 project goal. Casey’s General Stores Charitable Giving has also generously donated $1,000 towards this goal.
We are requesting a donation of $10/ticket and hope that you will swing through for some GREAT food! Even if you cannot attend please consider sending a donation to help us raise the needed funds. A free-will donation would be appreciated for children and additional meals. The Pipestone Ambulance Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization & your donation may be tax-deductible.
If you received a donation envelope in the mail, please return your donation and the completed name stubs in the enclosed envelope before March 1st, 2023. Your kind donation will enter you in a drawing for first aid kit door prizes. You need not be present to win, however, please bring your tickets for admittance to the drive-thru feed. The inclement weather reschedule date will be March 11th. Please listen to KLOH/KISD radio and check the Pipestone County Ambulance Facebook page for information.
Please help us reach our goal of $16,000 for the purchase of the needed equipment for our 27-volunteer member squad & our community.
THANK YOU for your continued support!! It is greatly appreciated.
