Dear CAL FIRE Riverside & Local 2881 Members, Family and Friends,
Believe it or not the Christmas season is upon us once again. The Riverside County Professional Firefighters Benevolent Fund, with the support of CAL FIRE Riverside County Fire Chief Shawn Newman, has always taken an interest in helping others. We have established a tradition that has become extremely fulfilling and rewarding over the years. “Shop with a Firefighter”. This is your opportunity to help children in need. Through a carefully selected screening process set forth by the Riverside County Child Protective Services Department, our goal is to partner firefighters with a minimum of 100 children. Each youth will receive a $250.00 gift card of which $200.00 must be used to purchase clothing, school supplies or personal necessities. The remaining $50.00 may go towards toys, personal interest or gifts for their family. Any remaining funds will be returned to the benevolent fund.
We realize that many of your budgets may be tight, especially during the Holiday Season and asking you to give a little more, might be asking a lot so we only ask to give if you can, even just a little. Here is a list of ways you can give this holiday season:
A donation to the Riv. Co Professional Firefighters Benevolent Fund.
