National Fallen Firefighters Foundation
The United States Congress created the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation
to lead a nationwide effort to honor America's fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the
non-profit foundation has developed and expanded programs that fulfill that mandate.
Their mission is to honor and remember America's fallen fire heroes and to provide
resources to assist their survivors in rebuilding their lives.
Southeastern Firefighters’ Burn Foundation
The Southeastern Firefighters’ Burn Foundation, Inc. provides assistance to the families
of patients being treated at the Joseph M. Still Burn Center. Annually, more than
3000 burn victims from all over the US arrive at the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in
Augusta, GA. Augusta’s Burn Center is recognized as one of the top burn centers
in the world. The Burn Center has realized a 97% survival rate with their
patients, and their focus is returning burn victims to quality lives.
Wounded Warrior Project
This nonprofit organization began when a group of veterans and brothers were
moved by the stories of the first wounded service members returning home from
Afghanistan and Iraq. They realized that something needed to be done for these brave
individuals. The objective was to provide tangible support for the severely wounded
and help them on the road to healing, both physically and mentally. What had been
initially viewed, as a small contribution has become WWP's signature program; backpacks
delivered bedside to wounded warriors.
