GREENFIELD — Even though snow is still on the ground, donations are welcome for this year’s Independence Day celebration.

The Greenfield Recreation Department is seeking sponsors and donations for this year’s celebration happening July 6. According to Recreation Director Christy Moore, the department is looking to raise $18,000 in order to hold the event.

The event is scheduled for Friday, July 6, beginning at 4:30 p.m. at Beacon Field. It will feature live music, food vendors and of course, fireworks.

“It’s an opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate Independence Day,” Moore said.

In order to raise the money needed to hold the event, Moore is asking businesses to sponsor to the department.

Sponsors will be divided into four levels, each with their own benefits. Sponsor levels are $250, $500, $750 and $1,000.

In addition, residents are asked to donate, if possible. There is no minimum donation, Moore said, as any amount is welcome.

For now, donations can be mailed to the recreation department at 20 Sanderson St., Greenfield. Checks are requested with “fireworks” in the memo.

Moore said by next month, those interested will also be able to make donations online through the Recreation Department’s website.
