Giving Tuesday in Ely


Giving Tuesday is upon us and City Council members and the Mayor have decided to challenge our community to help out our local fire department.  As a first-response EMS agency the fire department is looking to upgrade to an electronic device capable of measuring baseline vitals quicker and more efficiently than traditional manual methods.

The equipment they are looking to purchase costs approximately $5000.

Council members and the Mayor have decided to donate a portion of their 2020 salaries to help purchase this device. Between Council and Mayor Miller, they have raised approximately $1400. The Ely Park Board has also offered to donate any proceeds from the Can Drive that they receive throughout the month, which is normally around $350! 

Mayor Miller is now asking for your help to get us to our goal. You can donate by clicking the link below or you can drop off a donation at the City Hall drop box. Another way you can help is by donating your cans. They can be dropped off at the City garage just south of Dan & Debbie’s throughout the entire month of December. Any amount helps as we work together to purchase this potentially life-saving equipment for our community.

We appreciate your consideration and support!
