Firefighters “Fill The Boot For Burns” Boot Drive Fundraiser

Each year, dozens of fire agencies throughout Northern and Central California help make a positive difference in the lives of burn survivors by hosting a Boot Drive in their community.

Hundreds of firefighters volunteer every year to collect money in their boots during the annual Firefighters “Fill the Boot for Burns” Boot Drive fundraisers for the Firefighters Burn Institute.

Donations are used to improve burn treatment and to fund life-altering burn recovery programs, including Firefighters Kids Camp for young burn survivors and the Little Heroes Family Burn Camp.

In 2024, our goal is to raise one half million dollars to support burn programs and regional burn centers. We are confident that with the help of fire agencies who have already stepped forward and made commitments to hold Boot Drives in 2024, we can meet this challenge

BurnNet Survivors Meeting

The BurnNet Survivors Meeting is a twice monthly meeting where burn survivors and survivors of necrotizing fasciitis, families and significant others discuss issues and raise questions related to their injury.

The meeting is facilitated by the Firefighters Burn Institute Regional Burn Center Burn Outreach Coordinator and a SOAR peer. They provide a relaxed, safe and undisturbed atmosphere, conducive to the needs of all those who attend. UC Davis Medical Center is a Survivors Offering Assistance in Recovery (SOAR) — designated facility, some of our peer support volunteers will serve as a source of hope and inspiration to those impacted by a burn injury. Questions are answered and anxieties related to the injuries can be diminished or alleviated in this safe haven. Useful topics are discussed each month to aid in the participants’ understanding of the various stages of injury, rehabilitation and recovery.
 
Other specialists are featured in Lunch Bunch sessions, held the second Thursday of each month from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m. They speak to topics like cosmetics, vocational rehabilitation and physical therapy, and reconstructive options. Sign up through our Google Form.
 
The Firefighters Burn Institute also occasionally hosts a Yoga + Mindfulness, journaling, or light exercise session during some months. Email valorie@ffburn.org for more information or call (916) 739-8525 and ask for Valorie.
