Dear CALFIRE 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 CALFIRE Riverside County Fire Chief John Hawkins, 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 $200.00 gift card of which $150.00 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.
This year’s events will be held at the La Quinta and Menifee Target Stores. On December 8th and
December 16th we will need CALFIRE Members to help partner with youth
to act as chaperones for these events. All
CALFIRE Members willing to act as chaperones will need to contact Brad Moore at
b.moore@rvcfireL2881.org. Firefighters need to arrive at their designated location on
the day of the event with most events lasting 2-3 hours.
Target Store - La Quinta – December 8th,
2018 – 1000-1200
Target Store - Menifee – December 16th. 2018 –0900-1300
