Fundraiser scheduled for Nov. 15 to support annual Shop with a Firefighter event

The Purdue University Fire Department is once again partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Lafayette to host a Shop with a Firefighter event. Eligible children and families join a firefighter to shop at a local store. They shop for clothes, toys and other items they may need this holiday season.

In order to help support this year’s shopping event, the fire department is hosting a fundraiser at Nine Irish Brothers in West Lafayette on Nov. 15 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. A portion of sales will be donated to PUFD for the shopping event.

Individuals who wish to donate directly can send a check made payable to Purdue Firefighters to their campus address:

Purdue Firefighters
Attn: Shop with a Firefighter
1250 W. Third Street
West Lafayette, IN 47907

Questions about the fundraiser or shopping event may be directed to PUFD at 765-494-6919.
