SPFD Coffee Mug - Bolder Options

Bolder Options Fundraising Effort:

Local 21 has partnered with a local vendor, Deneen Pottery, to help raise funds in support of the Bolder Options mentoring program. Deneen Pottery, a 2nd generation St. Paul based company, has been hand-spinning fine pottery since 1972.

To show support of this fine program please consider purchasing an SPFD Local 21 custom made mug(s). Mugs are being sold for only $15. This high-quality custom hand-crafted mug will bring your coffee drinking experience to the next level. All mug proceeds go directly to St. Paul Bolder Options charitable organization, supporting Mentor/Mentee relationships built with at-risk St. Paul youth.

To accommodate the holiday season, there are two mug order options:

Option 1 - On 10/12/16 each station will be provided with an order sign-up sheet and payment envelope. Cash or check will be accepted. Please make checks payable to: Local 21. The payment and order deadline will be 10/24/16. Mugs will be delivered mid to late December to your respective station.

Option 2 - For a guarantee delivery date before Christmas, you must email me with your mug order on or before 3 pm, 10/17/16 . Please include: name, station, # of mugs to be ordered. Email to:  Once your email order is received (before 10/17) you will also need to complete that same order on the sign-up sheet located at your respective station. All payments are due on 10/24/16 in the payment envelopes found at each station.   

 The above attachment is a computer generated image of the SPFD Local 21 mug design. Thank you for your generosity in supporting this program. Any ordering questions please feel free to email or call.

The Power of the Dollar -2016 Charitable Giving

The Power of the Dollar -2016 Charitable Giving 
   Captain Bob Kippels had a great idea- What if every Firefighter in St Paul gave just one dollar to the Saint Paul Fire Foundation each pay period…their total donation would be just $26….but the combined donations would add up to over $11,000.  There is power in working together.  You have until October 21st to make your donation online (link below) or use one of the forms in your Station- Please give today!

Why should I give to the Foundation you ask…Look what they have done for YOU!

Laryngoscopes, AED’s in schools and Rec Centers, Heart Scans, Workout Equipment In The Fire Stations, Spirometry, Lucas Devices, Hydrant Flags, Honor Guard Uniforms and Scholarships for Firefighters!

Please choose to give to the Saint Paul Fire Foundation Today-Thank You

Tim Selander Update

Just wanted to send out an update about Mike Selander's son Tim. Due to the increase in size of one of the brain tumors, Tim has lost most of the use of his left side. This loss of mobility and the layout of their home have created the need for an in home stair lift and a wheelchair accessible van. To help cover the costs a GoFundMe page has been set up on Tim's CaringBrigde website, if you wish to donate CLICK HERE. You can access this page when you sign into

 The initial goal of $20,000 has already been surpassed by $5000 but all additional donations will go towards covering the costs of in-home health care not covered by insurance. Also feel free to make donations into the prayer fund. This goal has not been surpassed.
