Brownstown Goodfellows

The Brownstown Firefighters would like to announce we will be selling newspapers for the Brownstown Goodfellows organization on Wednesday, November 23, 2016. Please look for us in front of the Kroger store on Gibraltar road just east of I-75 in Brownstown.

Please stop by and help make a difference and ensure there is “No child without a Christmas”. This is just one of the many ways the Brownstown Professional Fire Fighters Union continues to help give back to our community.

Goodfellows

The Brownstown Firefighters would like to announce we will be selling newspapers for the Brownstown Goodfellows organization on Friday, November 27, 2015. Please look for us at the corners of Allen Rd and Sibley and also Allen Rd and Gibraltar. New this year, we will also be collecting on Wednesday, November 25th at the Kroger store on West Rd. This will allow us the opportunity to not only take advantage of the increased foot traffic on the day before Thanksgiving but it also provides us a safe environment to collect for the Goodfellows.

Your Brownstown Firefighters will also be working on a project with a group of Shumate Junior High students, to help raise awareness in their community, volunteerism, and empathy for others. Please stop by and help these students make a difference and ensure there is “No child without a Christmas”. This is just one of the many ways the Brownstown Professional Fire Fighters Union continues to help give back to our community.
