On Saturday September 3rd, The Brick located on Maple Ave in Milton held a charity BBQ in support of FFAD. We raised $255 for the CFFF. Special thanks to The Brick for providing all food and set up, thanks to Milton FireFighters who came out to support and thanks to the FFAD Volunteer Committee members for spending the day BBQ’ing!
On Saturday September 17, 2011, Milton Fire Department teamed up with Team FirePower from Reebok CrossFit FirePower to hold a charity car wash. With the help of all involved and the generous community of Miltonians who came through the wash bays, the event raised over $1,100 for FireFighter Appreciation Day. All proceeds will be going directly to the Canadian Fallen FireFighters Foundation on behalf of Milton Fire Department.
On Saturday October 8 firefighter appreciation day was held at the Milton fairgrounds. Thanks to all who participated and came out to support this year’s FFAD event. This was certainly our best year yet on many counts. We had the largest number of teams thanks to extra bunker gear and SCBA’s made available, 68 volunteers, support from the Town of Milton and beyond, and over $8,000 raised this year – now a total of $14,000 raised to date now!
