In Memory of “Craig Helmholtz”

The SKFR Volunteer Association is proud to provide community scholarships. We have provided community members with financial assistance for higher education since 1999.

Craig Helmholz inspired our program. Craig began volunteering with SKFR (Dist 7) in 1995. He was exceptional because he continued to serve the community through the department even after beginning his battle with cancer.
Sadly, Craig passed away in November 1999. 

We invite you to apply to our $1,000 Craig Helmholz scholarship. The current application is now available to print. Look for a link to the pdf form below.

Local Youth Sports Scholarships

We are proud to have a renewing program to provide regular annual sponsorships for local youth sports through the Fire House Spaghetti Feed. The little league, based in Manchester, was in need of a storage facility for their equipment. Funding was provided to help construct a shed. In the other photo, you see new bleachers provided to the SK tennis team. In 2008, the Diamond Dusters team received our sponsorship. Not to forget the Puget Sound Swim Club. The history of sponsoring local youth sports spans many years. Click the link below to find out more.
