Welcome to the Fenton Firefighters Charities Site
Food Give Away Saturday September 16th
Thank you for supporting our 2017 Annual Charity Golf Outing
On Saturday August 19th, we hosted our 11th annual charity golf outing event at the Coyote Preserve in Fenton. Our event Title sponsor was the Fenton Fire Hall restaurant. This year was our biggest year so far with having 121 golfers. The day started with a putting competition where everyone circled the practice green and had to putt a ball between their legs to a spot in the center of the green. Whoever was closest won a prize for the contest. We then teed off at 8am for a 4 man best ball scramble format. Learn more…

Saturday September 24th we hosted another Food Giveaway event at our station. We teamed up with Play Like Jackson Foundation and St. Jude’s Church to purchase food from the Eastern Michigan Food Bank. From 9:00AM-11:00AM, we invited anyone in our area in need of food to come grocery shop at our station. Shoppers were able to get items such as frozen meat, fresh fruit and vegetables, snack foods, drinks, boxed baked goods, new toiletry items and more. Over 200 families from the area visited the event and we had over 20 volunteers on hand helping out. Local school students also volunteered by helping carry groceries to the shoppers vehicles when they were finished shopping.
Our charity has been created by the dedicated firefighters from the City of Fenton, Michigan, who truly believe that we can make a difference in our community. As we respond into the community we can observe up close the personal situations where people truly need a hand to live and succeed. We seek to plant positive seeds in and around our community for the benefit of the whole community.
