On Thursday, February 9th, 2023, the State of New York processed the registration of the Suffolk Firefighters Hockey Club, Inc. as a domestic not-for-profit corporation incorporated under New York Consolidated Not-for-Profit Laws Article 402. The Board of Directors is now preparing to submit applications for recognition as a 501(c)(3) non-profit and hope to hear more in the coming months.
SCFFHC is a non-profit, volunteer-run program that aims to provide the opportunity for firefighters and EMS providers, and other first responders to participate in the sport of hockey. Through the sport, we aim to create and strengthen community engagement, promote awareness of our first responder’s challenges, encourage team building, and aid other charitable causes that promote the well-being of Long Island’s firefighters and the communities they serve.
Stay informed and spread the word, as we are hard at work seeking ways to make participating in the fire service more desirable and making the game of hockey more affordable and rewarding for those who already give so much to their communities. Major announcements regarding sponsorships, events, games, community initiatives, fundraisers and so much more are right around the corner.
