WHO ARE WE?
The Naperville Professional Firefighters for a Cause is a 501c.3 non-profit organization that was born from the desire of the brothers and sisters of the Naperville Professional Firefighters Local 4302 to do something more for the community they serve.
The mission of the NPFFC is to seek out reputable organizations and charitable efforts that are serving the greater good in the Naperville community. We strive to serve in partnership with these organizations in their respective missions.
Our general activity is based in, but not limited to, raising funds and awareness in an effort to support our partner non-profit organizations. Previous beneficiaries have included St. Baldricks, Camp I Am Me Burn Camp, MDA, Turning Pointe Autism Foundation, Naperville Responds for our Veterans, Loaves & Fishes.

STOP, DROP & RUN 5K
The inaugural Stop, Drop and Run 5K Run/Walk, hosted by Naperville Professional Firefighters for a Cause and the Naperville Fire Department is to raise awareness and funds for Camp ‘I am Me.’ Camp ‘I am Me’ is a special and unforgettable one-week camp experience for children and teenagers who have experienced injuries from burns. Through the generosity of donors, supporters, and volunteers, the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance offers this camping opportunity at no-cost to campers; including lodging, meals, activities, and transportation to and from camp (YMCA Camp Duncan – Ingleside, IL).
THE ANNUAL FIREHOUSE FOODFIGHT
In partnership with the Naperville Fire Department, Local 4302 and the Fire Explorers, the NPFFC orchestrates this collective effort to support the important mission of Loaves and Fishes. All 10 stations and the administrative team compete over the course of 6 weeks to collect the most food! In 2016, we were able to collect more than 6000 food items totaling more than 2.5 tons! This year we are teaming up with the Rotary Club of Naperville to add a winter clothing collection to the drive! We are also adding a few more fun wrinkles to the mix to grow the impact and reach of our effort.
