Want to thank Firefighters in your community who are fighting wildland fires?

Firefighters love cookies and homemade treats,
but there's something else you can give these brave men & women,
a gift that is more sustainable.

What can you do to thank Firefighters in your community who are fighting wildland fires?

“The Wildland Firefighter Foundation provides vital financial and emotional assistance to families of wildland firefighters who die, or are seriously injured in the line of duty. Each year, firefighters lose their lives or sustain major injuries fighting wildland fires, leaving families struggling with their loss, frequently their main source of income. In the event of a firefighter injury or fatality, monetary assistance is frequently very slow to arrive from agencies, if at all. The Foundation bridges this gap by granting monies directly to a firefighter’s family to make ends meet in the interim. We support families with counseling, legal assistance, and advocacy in dealing with the insurmountable paperwork. We host an annual Family Day gathering, along with Christmas sponsorships for the young children that these firefighters leave behind. The Foundation is fully funded and supported through the pockets of wildland firefighters. Won’t you consider a financial donation to these Firefighters who are helping your community.”
