CYPRESS — The 21st annual Texas Volunteer Fire Fighters Relief Fund’s Parade of Lights is in the books, and you can relive the joy and excitement on our YouTube channel here.

The TVFFRF relief fund relies solely on contributions and help of the community. Anyone wishing to donate to the fund can visit https://tvffrf.com/donate/ or mail a check to P.O. Box 214, Cypress, Texas 77429.

“Any type of catastrophic event in their life or their family’s life, we step in like short-term disability,” TVFFRF president Rodney Crosby said about helping firefighters during a phone interview. “We’ll pay anything except for medical bills. We’ve (done) everything from taking somebody to the doctor, holding their hand, to paying for a funeral. We’re going to step in and try to take care of whatever we can to give them that relief — a little bit of peace of mind — to help them get back up on their feet.”
