The Newton Firefighters Childrens Fund was created back in 2012 to raise money for the children of fallen Firefighters across the state of Massachusetts and here in our own community of Newton. This fund pays out each year to any Massachusetts active firefighter who may pass. Each one of their children, (under 21), will receive a one-time check around the holiday season. The children of the fallen Newton firefighters stay in the program and receive a check every year until they reach the age of 21. The amount given out each year is in direct correlation to that years fundraising success. Though it may be a small gesture, our goal is to reinforce to the children that they are part of our extended Fire family and that they will not be forgotten.
