Boston Fire Gear is committed to supporting charities that directly benefit firefighters and the community-at-large. Below are a few charities where we made donations during 2010-2011. We are proud to be supporters of these fine organizations and plan to continue to offer our support in the future. Please visit their websites and consider making contributions as well.
The Gerard Dewan Memorial Fund
Gerard Dewan was only 35 years old on September 11, 2001. On that day, he and eleven others from Ladder Company 3 (Battalion 6) in Lower Manhattan were called to duty at the World Trade Center. He was one of the first rescuers to enter the twin towers, but he never made it out.
The Gerard Dewan Memorial Fund was established to keep Gerard's memory alive and to honor his commitment to helping others.
