Annual Lights & Ladders Brigade

The Lights & Ladders Brigade is an event hosted by four amazing foundations. The Tom Hopkins Foundation, Christmas without Cancer, Project Fire Buddies, and Finley Forever Foundation all come together to raise money and bring cheer to families battling cancer during the holiday season.

Our Goal

The Annual Lights & Ladders Brigade helps spread holiday cheer and support for families fighting against cancer. Firefighters from across three states volunteer their time to decorate the homes of multiple recipients. It is a heartwarming and memorable event for everyone involved. All proceeds go towards holiday decorations, general costs of the event, and family gifts and donations.
