Meat & More Raffle

Each year we send an annual letter to all residents in our fire district. This letter gives residents an update of our department, service call volume, and how we have spent donations from the past year. This is our largest fundraiser each year, helping us to purchase and upgrade equipment for each firefighter, engine and response vehicle, and upgrades to our building. 2020 was a difficult year for all of us, however the citizens were able to dig deep and helped us raise $31,000. This year, 2022, our goal is $35,000.

In past years we have been able to include raffle tickets for residents to fill out and remit with their donation. Last year, due to changes in the Iowa Gaming and Licensing laws, we were notified that we are unable to send tickets in the mail or ask that local residents send their stubs and donations back to us through the mail.

We are instead asking all those interested in raffle tickets to purchase those from us at the Jefferson-Monroe Fire Station in Swisher on the evening of the Soup Supper October 15, 2022 5-8pm.

Tickets are $5 each. Please write your name legibly, as well as a good phone number to reach you if you aren’t present at the drawing.

There are also many local businesses that have raffle tickets available for purchase. Please see the list of participating businesses below. If you know of a local business willing to sell raffle tickets please email us at All sales must be made in person, by cash or check.

  • Five Star Shop Service
