Shop with a Firefighter fundraising events Oct. 17 and Nov. 6

The Purdue University Fire Department (PUFD) is planning their ninth annual "Shop with a Firefighter" event to provide help for families in the community who are less fortunate. Firefighters are seeking monetary donations that will be used to purchase gifts for children, and each child will be paired with a firefighter for one-on-one interaction as they shop together at a local store. 

As in past years, PUFD is again partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters, a United Way Agency, for this program.

Ways to donate

  • Attend one of the fundraising events being held at Nine Irish Brothers in West Lafayette on Oct. 17 and Nov. 6. A portion of the proceeds raised between noon and 9 p.m. on both days will be donated to the cause.

  • Donate directly to the program by sending a check payable to "Purdue Firefighters" at the following address prior to Dec. 7:

Purdue Firefighters
Attn: Shop with a Firefighter
1250 West 3rd St.
West Lafayette, IN 47907
