History

PFFC started out small. We had lost one of our firefighters, so the Peoria Fire family started taking out of their own paychecks to assist his family. When they weren't in need of our financial support anymore, we had the idea to keep going to make a difference in our community. That's when Peoria Firefighters Charities was born.
