Members of Local 2029 have been raising funds for years. Whether it is for cancer or Multiple Sclerosis research, the Rye Professional Firefighters have been donating their time and effort to raise awareness and money for many issues that effect our community. Members hold an annual boot drive in December to benefit the Maria Fareri Children's Hospital at Westchester Medical Center. We have donated over $100,000 to the hospital in the past 10 years. In addition, recent funds have been raised for breast cancer support groups and the Stephen Siller Foundation.
