(May 5, 2019) — Bridgeport, CT –Mayor Ganim was joined by Senator Blumenthal to help members of the Bridgeport Fire Department launch their T-Shirt Campaign that will benefit Homes for the Brave.  The Bridgeport Fire Department in cooperation with other local fire departments have partnered with Homes for the Brave for this campaign that will support veterans.  Homes for the Brave provides safe housing, case management, vocational services, and life skills coaching to homeless individuals, primarily Veterans in the greater Bridgeport area. Residents are encouraged to purchase t-shirts to support their efforts in providing a better quality of life for the men and women who have served in our armed forces. The fundraiser will run from now to September 22nd.

Fire Chief Thode said, “The t-shirt fundraiser is an opportunity for our firefighters to be involved and for residents to give back. Often times veterans come home with no way to support themselves and no place to live. We have members who have served and are currently serving in our fire department and we believe it is only right that we support those who have fought for our freedoms. This fundraiser not only helps the veterans get back on their feet but also helps make a difference in the lives of their families.”

The cost is $20.00 for sizes small, medium, large and 1x.  Size 2x and 3x will be $22.00. Payment will be accepted in cash and checks made payable to TFF (The Fireosity Foundation).

To place an order visit any local Bridgeport firehouse or, email Bridgeport.fire@bridgeportct.gov.
