the fundraisers for this organization have harrassed me for contributions by phone , last year i willingly gave, this year at this time i am unemployed, and they still relented in going ahead "putting me down" for a contribution of $25. when i repeatedly stated i am having a hard time paying my rent, these unabashed promotional tactics are discusting, i will not be contributing again in the future due to the pressure sales techniques

I to have been called with claims that it supports the wildfire Academy, which is just next door. si I'll check there tomorrow.

I realize that there are volunteer departments in places like Jerome and Black Canyon City, but seems like those folks should support their own.(We pay taxes for ours). I gave last year, but do not think it the most important charity or non-profit outfit around.

I have just been called by these guys too and i'mtired of it. I don't know how they use this money and i think it is suspect. I just say yes on the phone to appease them and then never send the money. I wish i can get off their list

Dear President of the Volunteer Fire Fighters of Arizona, your phone reps are extremely rude and
very pushy. I gave to your organization in May of
2008 and when they called in December would not take no for an answer. I received another pledge form. Sorry, but I will not give again. The Food
Bank and other organizations here in Tucson are more important. Please remove me from your list.
