The TFCF is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving underprivileged children and families from the City of Troy and neighboring communities. TFCF is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) charitable organization comprised of Troy volunteer firefighters and their families.
Since 2008, the TFCF has annually sponsored "Shopping With a Firefighter" in which as many as 40 underprivileged children ranging in age from 3 to 13 years, from low income households, spend a day shopping with Troy firefighters. The purpose of the event is to give these children and their families an opportunity to give gifts to their loved ones when they may not ordinarily be able to do so.
The day begins with the children making a shopping list for themselves and their family members. The children then shop with a firefighter for gifts such as clothing, bedding supplies, toys, etc. Next, the children travel back to the fire station to wrap their gifts, after which a meal is hosted by the firefighters. Various crafts and activities are available at the fire station for the children as well.
The entire event is funded through charitable donations and fundraising activities.
Firefighter Memorial Project
In an effort to honor our past volunteers, the TFD is putting forth a fundraising effort for a permanent Firefighters Memorial to be appropriately located within Firefighters Park. The majority of funding is to be raised by our volunteer members, and we are seeking donations in addition to hosting fundraising events. In our 78 year history, this is the first organized effort to raise funds for such a project.
