Community Involvement

The members of IAFF Local 37 have and continue to be generous with their time and talents.  When they are not at work, many of them volunteer within the community.  Due to such a benevolent group of individuals, the local is able to sponser several events during the year.  Members volunteer their time ringing the bell for Salvation Army, raising money for muscular distroyphy, and selling raffle tickets to support local charities.  Please click on the links to find out more information about any of these events.



The International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) is the largest national sponsor of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).  As the greatest contributor to MDA, fire fighters are everywhere in the efforts to raise money.  The IAFF is the biggest sponsor of MDA’s Labor Day Telethon and it contributed a record breaking $27.5 million in year 2008.  Every Labor Day weekend, fire fighters from Local 37 greet motorists, shoppers and others and ask them to donate money to MDA and Fill-the-Boot.




Every fall, the men and women of Local 37 sell tickets for a wonderful charity event called the 12 Days of Christmas. One person is drawn for $500 each day during the month of November. The money raised allows our union to donate at least $1000 to 12 charities in the days leading up to Christmas. Look inside to see the winners, as well as the charities we have donated to.

Need a ticket?

Ask any Springfield Firefighter and they can make sure you get one.
