Krewe of the knights of St. John

Hillsborough Fire Rescue


Please allow me the honor to introduce you to men and women of Krewe of the Knights of St. John.  We are a non-profit (501 C3) organization comprised of men and women of Hillsborough County Fire Rescue.  The mission of the Krewe is to provide financial support and program development for community fire safety education.  Among the programs we support include the Juvenile Fire Setter Program, Children’s Fire Safety Day Camp, Community Fire Station Open House Events, and fire safety education programs to the children in the Hillsborough County school system.  Additionally, we provide firefighter scholarships to young men and women who strive for a career in Public Safety to help defray the cost of the Firefighter Academy and/or Paramedic School.

We are seeking corporate sponsorship from select businesses in the Tampa Bay area, which recognize the need to increase public safety awareness and support our efforts.  One sponsor recently donated a decommissioned Class A Fire Engine to the Krewe for our public education efforts.  We are seeking your help to assist us in the refurbishment of this fire engine, which will serve as the centerpiece for public fire education and public display. 

In addition to the commitment toward public fire education, we also support Hillsborough County Fire Fighters Charities, Inc., which is also a 501C (3) tax-deductible organization.  Hillsborough County Fire Fighters Charities supports the Firefighter’s Widow and Children’s Fund.  Their mission is to provide timely financial assistance and support to Hillsborough County firefighter families who suffer a death or catastrophic injury.  Lastly, Hillsborough County Fire Fighters Charities, Inc., provides a college scholarship to the children of fallen firefighters.

As you can see, we are a busy organization but cannot continue without our corporate partners.  Please accept my invitation to review the enclosed literature before making a decision.  On behalf of the Krewe of the Knights of St. John and Hillsborough County Fire Fighters Charities, Inc., thank you for your support.

Joe Chillini, President
