FMBA 21 extends our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you who generously contributed to our Toys for Tots fundraiser. Your kindness and generosity have made a significant impact on the lives of children in need during this holiday season. Donated toys gathered from our six fire stations have been transported and are now being distributed to families in need through the Boys and Girls Club. Thanks to your donations, we were able to collect a remarkable number of toys that will bring joy and smiles to the faces of countless children.

We are so grateful for the generous donations of food, bedding, blankets, kitten formula, treats, litter boxes, and lots of toys for our beloved animals. With the pantry shelves fully stocked for the winter, we can make sure that all the animals will be warm and cozy.

Thank you to all residents that stopped by our tent today; it was a pleasure meeting your families. Special thanks to our members who came to pull the tank today! We had a showing of over 30 members which made the 2023 Tank Pull a HUGE success for the Knights of Columbus. Today, we also remember our own fallen FMBA 21 Brother Daniel Meeks who passed away at a young age to health problems. He had a short time on this earth serving the USMC and Clifton Fire Department, but his character and service will not be forgotten. Thank you again for all your continued support.
Clifton FMBA 21 will participate in the 2023 Tank Pull sponsored by the St Philip Knights of Columbus. The event will occur this Sunday, June 11, 2023, at 8 am at 1100 Clifton Avenue. Members of Clifton FMBA 21 will take part in pulling an 80,000-pound tank to commemorate those who have been wounded in combat and will ensure their service will not be forgotten. This year, members of FMBA 21 will be wearing tee shirts with the name of our fallen Brother Daniel Meeks who passed away at a young age to health problems. Daniel Meeks was a Clifton Firefighter and Marine Veteran who passed away at 31 years of age due to a brain tumor. He had a short time with the Clifton Fire Department but his character and service to the USMC will not be forgotten. Please come by and support our team in this fantastic fundraising event!
