Fund Created to Help Purchase Additional Rescue Equipment
Community members are rallying to raise money for additional rescue equipment.
Residents gathered at the Seven Points Visitors Center in Huntingdon County Thursday to speak about the need to purchase a new high-tech robotic camera for the Markelsburg Volunteer Fire Company in the Raystown Lake area.
The family of 16-year-old Clay Bishop, who drowned back in August, is spearheading the effort by launching the new "Clay Bishop Water Rescue and Safety Fund.”
Fund organizers are aiming to raise about $113,000 and have already collected more than $18,000.
Donations to the "Clay Bishop Water Rescue & Safety Fund" can be sent to the Woodcock Valley Bible Church, 3616 Morningstar Drive, James Creek Pennsylvania 16657
