At the October 2010 Member’s Meeting of the Naperville Professional Firefighters Local 4302, an extensive discussion broke out about the organization’s ongoing support of local charitable causes and a collective desire to do more to give back to the community that has supported the Local’s members with gainful employment and benefits over the years.
It was decided that the organization would create a new organization dedicated to a non-profit mission of partnering with other charitable and local entities in and around the Naperville community. The mission of this non-profit would be to further the missions of other non-profits.
So it was determined and with that, a committee of the 501c.3’s original members was formed:
- Brian Michor
- Scott Jackson
- Barry Quane
- Tom Hedberg
- Phil Carmody
These original 5 members set forth in partnership with the Executive Committee of the Naperville Local 4302 to establish the organization of the Naperville Professional Firefighters for a Cause.
