Community Outreach: Assistance & Education Update - Central County Fire & Rescue

Community Outreach: Assistance & Education Update

The Central County Community Outreach program is an independent nonprofit organization of off-duty firefighters who provide assistance to the community during times of need and assists with educating the community about fire and emergency prevention. Learn more about some of the group’s recent work below!

  • In partnership with St. Peters elected officials, the outreach program hosted a trivia night that raised more than $20,000 for the local Home Delivered Meals Program.
  • The annual mud volleyball tournament raised more than $2,500 for the Disabled Athlete Sports Association (DASA). The community outreach volunteers also host these athletes for practices, special events and more.
  • During the holiday season, the community donated more than $6,000 in toys (enough to fill two trucks) to the Foster Adoption Support Team (FAST). Many of the toys were collected at the annual Toys for Tats drive hosted by Permanent Vacation Tattoo. The toys were all distributed to children in our area.
  • While delivering gifts to one of the families adopted during the holidays, the team learned that one of the adults was driving on a spare tire because she was unable to afford a replacement. They stepped in to help, replacing the damaged rim and tire to get her back on the road.
  • In the midst of one of the coldest months of the year, donated coats were delivered to the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County for distribution to local kids in need.
  • This winter, a scholarship program was launched for students at Fort Zumwalt South and East, Francis Howell Central and North and Lutheran high schools. A $500 scholarship will be awarded to one student from each school. Winners will be announced later this spring.
