In Support of Fire Fighters

In Hawaii, there are two Foundations associated with HFFA:

  • Honolulu Firefighters Foundation (HFF) – The Foundation and  originator of the annual Signature Chefs Food Festival which supports members of the Honolulu Fire Department, the Straub Burn Unit and smoke alarm installations in kupuna homes on Oahu.

Below are legitimate mainland firefighter foundations that we are familiar with:

The Honolulu Firefighters Foundation is preparing for its 10th Annual Signature Chefs Food Festival on September 14, 2019 at the Honolulu Fire Department Headquarters. The event planner is Pacific Rim Concepts in charge of handling ticket sales through mail and online orders only and no cold calls or solicitations are being conducted. Questions regarding the event can be directed to Lee-Ann Choy at lee-ann@pacificrimconcepts.com.

In July, the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Company has concluded fundraising to benefit the HPFF through in-store sales of its Heroes at Heart specially labeled products. Visit HPFF at www.hawaiifirefightersfoundation.org for more information.

The HPFF is not conducting its own fundraiser at this time.

Should you receive a suspicious call for donations, the Hawaii State Attorney General’s office suggests asking for the organization name and a contact number to check against the AG database at https://ag.ehawaii.gov/charity/search.html

Take precaution and do not share your personal information with any suspicious caller.

Mahalo to our Kauai Retiree and Station 39 for the tips.
