Community Involvement

Allied Fire Protection, Inc. understands that it has a responsibility to “Give Back” to the communities in which we conduct our business endeavors.  We would not have achieved over 30 years of success without the support of the communities in which we live and work.  Whether it is through direct Financial Contributions, or the volunteering of our time, equipment, and resources;  we take great pride in being able to continually assist in various ways.  Below is a few examples of our Community Involvement efforts: 


Allied Fire Protection, Inc. served as a “Donation drop off location” for supplies to help those in need, as a result of Hurricane Matthew.  We collected 2 truckloads of goods from our employees, friends, churches, etc.  With many of our employees, families, and friends living in the Robeson County, N.C. area, we feel very blessed and honored to have been able to collect, organize/load, and deliver the goods to this great community.  If you would like to contribute to the ongoing Disaster Relief efforts, please visit:


The Open Arms Foundation is the corporate charity of MAA, and the heart of our company.  Its mission is to provide a home away from home for individuals and/or families who must travel to receive medical treatment. In 2015 alone, MAA had 46 Open Arms homes throughout 11 states. These homes provided 112 families with 12,441 nights of rest!” ….. this statement is taken from the Open Arms Foundation Website.  If you would like to learn more about or contribute to the Open Arms Foundation, please visit:


The Tour de Cure is the signature fundraising event of the American Diabetes Association and our nation’s largest diabetes cycling event with over 50,000 participants in nearly 80 cities across the country”…..this statement is taken from the American Diabetes Association website.  If you would like to learn more about or contribute to The Tour de Cure, please visit:





 “The proceeds raised through Garner Firemen’s Day supports charities such as “Relay for Life”, the Shriner’s Club, Fallen Firefighters’ Association, Special Olympics and the Garner Magnet High School. We also donate to local Firemen, Police Officers and EMS workers who are financially struggling due to an injury or illness (such as cancer). The majority of the proceeds go to the NC Jaycee Burn Center in Chapel Hill. Every December, members of our fire department travel to the Burn Center with gifts and a direct donation. A fireman will dress up as Santa Claus and visit every patient in the burn unit regardless of age. With help in the past from such great companies as Wal-Mart and Target, we are able to purchase gifts such as slippers, robes, CD players, DVD movies, and much needed phone cards for the patients. The smile on their face when Santa gives them a gift is so amazing and rewarding.”  ……. this statement was taken from the Garner Fire-Rescue Sponsorship request form.  If you would like to learn more about or contribute to The Garner Firemen’s Day, please visit:
