Shop with a firefighter
Updated On: Feb 02, 2016

     In 2005 the members of the Honor Guard were looking for a way to give back to the community. We decided to start a "Shop With a Firefighter" program.  We take school children from families in need and let them go Christmas shopping. Each child has a $100 gift card to spend on presents for their family and themselves. Meijer corporation has donated 15-$100 gift cards since our first event. After shopping the children are taken back to one of our fire stations for a pizza party and to wrap their presents.  Donations are collected from the firefighters, fire administration, and the employees from West Bloomfield Town Hall. Original Romanos of Orchard Lake donates the food.  Entertainment Express donates our transportation trolley. As our program continues to grow we are able to help more families. This year we received a new donor in the Carhartt Corporation, they made a very generous donation to our program. In the future we will be able to do much more to help the entire family for the holidays and beyond. To see a video about the program http://civiccentertv.com/shop-with-a-firefighter-2014/
