Community Involvement

Giving back to the community.

The Vaughan Professional Fire Fighters Benevolent Fund was started in 1992 to raise money for local charities on behalf of the members of the Vaughan Professional Fire Fighters Association (VPFFA). Over the years we have donated thousands of dollars to hospitals, community groups, burn units and other organizations within our community. Our members are proud to participate in helping improve the lives of the people we protect beyond the emergency work we do.

Currently, we host a 4-on-4 hockey tournament every spring, a Muscular Dystrophy Boot Drive with each incoming recruit class, and our annual Vaughan Firefighters calendar. The money raised is sent to the various charities by the Benevolent Committee. Most notably, our efforts have been directed toward Vaughan’s first hospital, resulting in a $100,000 pledge to the Mackenzie Health Foundation on behalf of the VPFFA.

You can help by coming to one of our events or by a direct donation to the Vaughan Professional Fire Fighters Benevolent Fund. It is through the generosity of the citizens of Vaughan and the surrounding communities that our Benevolent Group is able to carry out the good work that it does. Please show your support for our Firefighters and our community by giving generously
