The Rupert Firefighter Foundation was created in April of 2011. Its purpose is to provide charity and good will giving to the community and organizations that surround southern Idaho. Events such as roadside litter pick up and Christmas light installations for the elderly are what inspired us to form a non-profit foundation that is a separate organization from the City of Rupert. Its members are local firefighters that give their time in a place of need to people in need. This is one more way for us to give back to what someone else started in our community.
