Event Summary

It's that time of year again, and we are asking for your help with our annual Shop With A Fire Fighter. The City of Madison Fire Department and the other Fire Departments throughout the county are coordinating the event this year, so that the less fortunate children in our City/County are able to have a nice Christmas. We are asking for your help through donations. In the past, it has been our goal to take 100 children shopping for clothes, coats, shoes/boots (necessities) and a few toys, spending 150$ on each child. There is an interview committee that meets with each family in person to understand their situation and needs. If the family qualifies to participate then they receive a formal invitation for the event. Prior to the shopping trip there is a pizza party where the children and the family can interact with responders, to help build relationships. Then the children ride on emergency vehicles and busses to Walmart to shop, upon returning they are provided drinks, cupcakes/cookies, and a visit from Santa himself. Along with helping the children our next goal is to provide each family with a food basket to take home, providing them with a Christmas meal to enjoy.

If you would like to make a donation, please send your check to: Shop with a Fire Fighter, 101 West Main Street, Madison IN 47250
