Check out this week’s newsletter to read about Fall Gala honorees and decreasing stress.


If you are in New York make your way to Fairway Brooklyn in Red Hook this Wednesday between 4-10PM to do your grocery shopping and the store will donate 25% of sales to Friends of Firefighters! Make sure to register at the FoF table that will be set up in-store before you head to the cashier. Thanks to FDNY Engine 224 in Brooklyn who won the Fairway Firefighter Food Face-Off last month for choosing us as their charity of choice!


We are very excited to have recently unrolled two new services that are accessible from ANYWHERE at ANY TIME, exclusively for active and retired FDNY firefighters and family members, and free of charge:
