SURREY (NEWS 1130) – If you’re in need of face masks and want to help your local first responders and community amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Surrey Fire Fighters’ Association Local 1271 has a solution for you.
The union is selling masks for charity, with all proceeds going to the Surrey Fire Fighters’ Charitable Society (SFFCS).
The charity supports more than 85 initiatives, including Bread for Life, local bursaries, disaster assistance, and the Nutritional Snack Program.
“As more and more of us are choosing to wear masks while out in public, with some establishments making them mandatory, we have designed two reusable masks,” says the union.
The masks come in two selections, black with Local 1271 and the Surrey Fire Department logo on each side or white with the same two patterns checkered throughout. They sell for $20 each, plus tax, and are reusable.

The initiative comes after the SFFCS recently held a raffle, sponsored by Surrey Honda, which raised more than $100,000 for local mental health initiatives.
The @SFFCharitable is absolutely blown away by the community support we have received. We can not thank our friends at @surreyhonda enough, for donating the brand new 2020 Honda CRV and everybody who purchased raffle tickets
