We are the Vancouver Firefighters' Charitable Society.
The VFCS represents Vancouver Firefighters' dedication to Community, and the desire to help better the lives of the less fortunate citizens within it.
During the Great Depression, Firefighters provided food and clothing to the underprivileged on what became know as "Sunshine Days". Vancouver Firefighters have continued this tradition over decades as we donate both our time and our own money to support a wide variety of important charitable causes.
The VFCS is an organization operated entirely by the Firefighter employees of the VF&RS. While we operate our own events, under our own direction, we do so with support from the VF&RS - in terms of providing fire apparatus and other considerations - at some of the events that we contribute to. This support is very much appreciated.
