The Terry Farrell fund heard about my Fire Depts struggles and immediately began trying to contact us. When I first spoke with them they asked "What do you guys need help with".....My answer was "EVERYTHING". My dept is located in the center of Detroit. We are very busy and VERY underfunded. We have been living in a 40,000sq Ft warehouse for the past 8 years because our fire station was condemned. We have no heat, no AC, no windows, roaches in the kitchen, and almost impossible to keep clean. Pretty much everything we use for daily living has to be thrown away and repurchased out of our own pockets before we move into our FEMA funded station that is currently being built. None of us have that kind of money. We already buy our own cleaning supplies.
Terry Farrell fund stepped up and took a HUGE weight off our shoulders by sending us 10 brand new beds and very nice recliners so that we have a place to rest on our down time. These things were going to be the most expensive out of the things we needed to supply for ourselves. We are all incredibly grateful and not even sure how we can properly thank the people at the Terry Farrell fund.

This is an amazing and GIVING organization that exists to serve fire departments and firefighters who need help - and fast. I am amazed every time I hear about another one of their selfless exchanges of equipment or vehicles that helps an emergency service agency better serve their community provided by this group that only exists to serve. I strongly support and encourage others to support the Terry Farrell fund - because you'll be helping so many others!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get the word out about their giving to more people.

I've observed first hand the work that is done by this organization. No group works harder for Fire Departments, the Fire Fighter or their families. When you support the "Terry Fund" you support the entire Fire Service Community.

My husband and I have been involved with this charity for about three years and have made it the key charity for our business. Our entire organization (150 people) are honored to be associated with the great deeds the Terry Farrell Fund puts forward. We most especially applaud the hard work that Chris Hill, Shawn Duncan, Brian Bush and Dan Santillanes (just to name a few!) have put into this organization. The stories of needs for our selfless professional and volunteer firefighters are overwhelming. We truly appreciate their fearless works and are appreciative that we can give back to them in some small way! Xo, Lisa & Mark Voss/Colorado Kilts, LLC

JUST SAW THESE GUYS WORKING ALL DAY IN BREEZY POINT NY WHERE 130 HOMES WERE LOST TO THE SANDY STORM. THEY WERE THERE WITH BLANETS AND COTS AND ALL THE FIRE GEAR NEEDED TO GET THE DEPARTMENTS IN THAT AREA UP AND RUNNING. THIS IS A GREAT CHARITY AND GREAT GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS. YOU SHOULD GO TO THE WBSITE TERRYFUND.ORG AND BUY A SHIRT OR MAKE A DONATION
