Since 2009, the Corpus Christi Firefighters C.A.R.E. (Cancer Awareness Relief Effort) Fund has donated over $550,000 locally to help fight this terrible disease.
Corpus Christi Firefighters C.A.R.E. (Cancer Awareness and Relief Efforts) is a 501(c)(3) organization that was created by a group of Corpus Christi Firefighters in 2009. In the last eight years we have donated over $500,000.
The American Cancer Society, First Friday, Driscoll Children’s Hospital and other charitable foundations have benefitted from our donations as well as a fund that was set up for area firefighters that are fighting cancer.
How they C.A.R.E.
C.A.R.E. money is raised solely by the sale of our t-shirts, caps and bracelets. We introduced our “Pink” fire truck in 2013 to help us in our battle.
