I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples”.                                  MOTHER  THERESA


          We would like to introduce ourselves. Our names are John and  Emmie Swisher. We are the founders of Volusia First Responders Children’s Charity, Inc.. We began this charity because we saw a need for medical care for children in our community.


          We are an IRS registered 501(c)3 charity, fully staffed by volunteers. Although the charity is new, the members are not. We have been involved in charity work for many years. We have helped many children throughout the years. (St. Jude, Children’s Burn Foundation, Make A Wish, just to name a few). Helping children is our passion. Most of our board members and volunteers are Emergency Medical Providers (Firefighters, EMT’s, Paramedics, Sheriff’s office). We take pride in not only serving our community through our careers but also through giving our time to help children in our community and beyond.


          We are setting our sights on becoming a large corporation that will have the ability to reach into our community and beyond in order to aid all children to get the medical care they need (physical, mental, and emotional)


         We have an array of fundraising events planned. These events raise only a small portion of the money we require to invest back into our community to help all the children that are counting on organizations, such as ourselves, to get and/or keep them healthy. Fundraising is a wonderful thing, and we all enjoy giving of our time, but it just isn’t enough to help all the children that need us.


          This is where we rely on businesses, and individuals, such as yourself. Your annual, monthly or one time contribution is what makes a difference in helping the children. Your monetary donation allows us the ability to make sure children have medical supplies, medications, be evaluated by a physician, etc. Without us (you and this organization) many children won’t receive the medical care they need.


          We would like to invite you to be one of our sponsors/donors who makes a difference in the life of a child. Your compassion aids these children in more ways then you will ever know.


           Should you have any questions about our organization or it’s members, please feel free to contact us. You can also learn more about us through our Facebook page: Volusia First Responders Children’s Charity.
