Charities

BTFD Charities LogoSince its inception in the mid 1980’s, The Bloomfield Township Firefighters Charities has worked diligently to help fund burn treatment research, prevent juvenile arson, assist local individuals and families in need, and many other charitable endeavors. The BTFD Charities has raised approximately $700,000.00 for these causes.

Throughout the years our fundraising events included Oldies Dances, over 30 years for our annual Golf Outing, Polar Bear Plunges, a Jack of Spades Raffle, Bowling Tournaments, and the Bloomfield Classic Car shows which coincides with the Woodward Dream Cruise.

Over the holidays the BTFD Charities partner with the Bloomfield Optimist Club to support the annual Holiday Wish program. This joint venture has provided gifts for hundreds of Bloomfield area children through the years to share the joy of the holiday spirit. At Christmastime you will find our members and their families donating their time doing holiday shopping and wrapping gifts for the children.

The BTFD Charities offers assistance in both local and surrounding areas. Our continued efforts help support medical treatment at The University of Michigan Trauma Burn Center, Children’s Hospital, Survival Flight of Michigan, St. Jude’s Hospital and Juvenile Diabetes. We also provide scholarships through Bloomfield Youth Assistance and the Oakland Community College Fire Academy.

If you would like to support these efforts, maybe be a sponsor for the golf outing or simply make a donation, call 248 433-7745 or send an e-mail to charities@bloomfieldtwp.org.
