2017 Holiday Party will be held December 3, 2017!!
For over 67 years, the Indianapolis Fire Department has partnered with the Muscular Dystrophy Family Foundation in hosting an annual Holiday Party for MDFF children and their families. The 2016 party was packed with fun and surprise visitors that included Colts Cheerleaders, Singers Ryan & Lauren Ahlwardt, Mascots – Nitro (Indy Fuel) and Rowdie (Indy Indians). Children also got to enjoy a Magic Show, Balloon Animals, Pets and Paws Therapy Dogs and a visit from Santa. A great party and time for these children to just enjoy being kids with other MD kids!
Under the direction of Battalion Chief Dudley Taylor each of the 44 IFD Stations collects money from the firefighters housed there and donates it to purchase a gift for each child that attends the annual holiday party. In recent years, the party has generous financial and volunteer support from Dauby O’Connor & Zaleski LLC CPA firm who is able to fund the food and activities!
The Indianapolis Fire Department believes in giving back to the community it serves 24/7. “Our family serving your family” is not just a motto but a 150 year core value that extends beyond the firehouse. We are thankful for the opportunity to bring smiles to those in need and not just in times of crisis.
