First Responders Foundation Logan County Chapter
The mission of the First Responders Foundation Logan County Chapter is to serve and honor all our First Responders, Veterans, and their families, build appreciation and respect for their work, and enhance public safety.
The Logan County Chapter is an extension of the First Responders Foundation. The Chapter is led by local community members who are best equipped to address the needs of first responders in the Logan County area. Funds raised here stay in Logan County and are used to further our mission. The Chapter partners directly with Logan County first responders and citizens to provide what is needed for local first responders and our community.
