On February 22, 2019 members of our Board of Directors and the 2018 Local 1664 Golf Tournament chairman Tommy Courtney visited the Burn Center at Medstar Washington Hospital Center to see first hand the impact they have on burn patients and what impact donations make. It was a very educational visit and reinforced the importance of raising funds for this great institution.
During the recent Federal Government shutdown, Federal fire fighters assigned to the National Institutes of Standards & Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg were forced to work without receiving a paycheck. We launched a fundraiser on our Facebook page to raise money to purchase gift cards for the fire fighters at NIST. With overwhelming generosity from our Facebook followers, over $6,000 was raised.
In December 2018 we made a donation of $5,000 to Operation Second Chance, who assists local veterans. The donation was made possible by the sales of Remember Everyone Deployed (RED) t-shirts.
In December 2018, we provided financial assistance to a professional fire fighter who suffered a significant fire at his house.
In July 2018, we made a $17,500 donation to the Burn Center at Medstar Washington Hospital Center. This donation was proceeds from the 2018 Bobby Jones Memorial Golf Tournament.
Keep checking back to see how we are fulfilling our mission.
