DFW Scanner Donates facilitates the donation and distribution of bottled water and other supplies to fire, police, and EMS departments, primarily located in the greater Dallas – Fort Worth metroplex region. We are a certified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
DFW Scanner Donates is the charitable arm of DFW Scanner, a social media based news blog dedicated to informing north Texans of local and community emergencies and public safety incidents. For several years, John Burgdorf, the owner and creator of DFW Scanner, and his brother Luke Burgdorf, a professional firefighter in the DFW-area, have worked with local organizations to receive and distribute bottled water to firefighters and emergency responders in need. The bottled water and cold beverages keep our public servants healthy and hydrated during prolonged scenes, such as structure fires and police incidents.
We have launched this non-profit organization to increase our efforts and promote hydration for all our local emergency responders.
As a certified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, DFW Scanner Donates provides a lucrative method to receive deductions in return for monetary or in-kind donations.
