Charities and Outreach in Glendale, Phoenix, and surrounding communities
Through Glendale charity events and outreach programs, we strive to serve and strengthen the community throughout Phoenix and Glendale, Arizona
Nobody becomes a firefighter seeking fame and fortune. They and their brothers and sisters in the public safety arena seem to be born with a deep-seated need to serve. That is only one reason that it should come as no surprise that, even after working twenty-four-hour shifts under the constant stress of call-outs, they still have not finished giving to the community of Glendale.
Over the course of the last year, Glendale AZ firefighters, under the auspices of the Glendale Firefighters Charities, donated over 6000 of their off-duty hours to helping members of the community in need and supporting local causes.
Just a small sampling of the efforts they have supported includes:
- American Cancer Society annual “Relay for Life” campaign
- Drowning Prevention Walks
- Glendale Firefighters Annual Back to School Drive
- Glendale Firefighters Annual Toy Drive
- Hope for Hunger Food Bank
- Muscular Dystrophy Association annual “Fill the Boot” Campaign
- Smoke Detector Installation Walks
Beyond all of this, they have taken their time to replace cabinets in ‘Special Needs’ classrooms, started a program to assist local military veterans and continued their financial support of Arizona firefighters who have been stricken with cancer as well as the families of all Public Safety Workers who have been lost in the line of duty. When a job has been too large for them to handle alone, they have coordinated with other local organizations and community-minded contractors to improve the lives of struggling families in the Glendale, AZ area.
Of course, it must be understood that just a small part of the credit for their successful efforts actually belongs to them. It is only through the support they have received from the residents, businesses and contractors who have donated time, money, resources, and skills that they have continued to be able to have the positive impact on the Glendale community they have enjoyed.
Glendale Firefighters and the Glendale Firefighters Charities work hard every day to help keep their neighbors safe and promote the feeling of community that has made Glendale, AZ one the fastest growing areas of the country. Through their outreach programs and support of other local charities, they strive to create a more hopeful community where no one ever has to suffer alone or do without the basic necessities of life. They strive to create a community where everyone, from the youngest to the oldest residents, feel they belong and are cared for.
They can’t do it alone though, they need your help. If you would like to show your support for the men and women who risk so much to keep us safe, they ask that you fill out the form provided. All donations, whether they are of time, money or other resources, are greatly appreciated.
