The Pipestone Ambulance Association will be holding their 31st annual Chili Feed Fundraiser on Saturday, March 6, 2021. Due to COVID-19 and the uncertainty of dine-in guidelines, the 2021 Chili Feed will be held in DRIVE-THRU form at the Pipestone County Emergency Services Building located at 811 5th St SE in Pipestone. Please note location change! Please look for signs and 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), along with chicken noodle soup, grilled hand and cheese sandwiches, and dessert. Quarts of Chili and Soup will also be available to purchase for $5/quart.
Delivery within Pipestone City Limits WILL be available from 4-5pm, but we ask that you call 507-825-1170 before 5 pm on March 4 to place a delivery order.
Their project for 2021 is funding the Stryker Power Load Cot System for the new ambulance that was recently delivered. This unit mounts to the floor of the ambulance and supports the entire weight of the patient and cot. The EMTs then just push the cot into the ambulance, and the unit locks securely in place. This equipment eliminates the need for the EMTs to lift the patient and cot, reducing the potential for back injuries. United Way of Pipestone County generously allocated $1,500 last year and $2,000 this year to help with the project. Casey's General Stores Charitable Giving also kindly donated $1,000 towards this project.
We are requesting $10 donations/ticket and hope that you will stop by for some GREAT food! Even if you cannot attend, please consider sending a donation to help them 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, and your donation may be tax-deductible.
If you received a letter with tickets, please return your donation and the completed name stubs in the enclosed envelope before February 26, 2021. Your kind donation will enter you in a drawing for first-aid kit door prizes. You need not be present to win, however, please brirng your tickets for admittance to the drive-thru feed. The bad weather reschedule date will be March 13. Please listen to KLOH/KISD radio and check the Pipestone County Ambulance Facebook page for information.
Please help them reach their goal of $15,000 for the purchase of the needed equipment for our 28-members squad.
The Pipestone Ambulance Association Members THANK YOU for your continued support!! It is greatly appreciated.
