The Festival’s charitable recipients for 2014 are headed by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. Congress created the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to lead a nationwide effort to honor America’s fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the non-profit Foundation has developed and expanded programs that fulfill that mandate. Our mission is to honor and remember America’s fallen fire heroes and to provide resources to assist their survivors in rebuilding their lives
Other recipients: Cancer Connection; Canton Food/ Fuel Bank; and Relay for Life.
