Our Mission

For only 33 cents a day you can give a firefighter lifesaving equipment.

Did you know that volunteers comprise 69% of Firefighters in the United States?
According to the National Volunteer Fire Council, of the total estimated 1,129,250 firefighters across the country, 783,300 are volunteers. The majority of the departments in the United States are volunteer fire departments and many do not have the vital tools and equipment they need to save lives and protect property.

How can you help?
By donating to Brothers Helping Brothers, you can help fund grants for vital tools and lifesaving equipment to these small and/or rural fire departments. By donating just $10 a month, that's just 33 cent a day, you can put a new ax in the hands of a firefighter that needs it to do his/her job.
