Our First Responders are the lifesavers on our communities. In many cases, these heroes are volunteers, reserves or auxiliary, who buy their protective gear and necessary work tools out of their own pockets.

They give freely of their time, and pay to do it.

The Concert for First Responders was created to raise funds to reimburse the voluntary First Responders for their out-of-pocket expenses and for their departments to do something special for this group.

100% of the funds raised through your contributions will be awarded to the departments in Stark County that demonstrate a practical need for the money, based on a criteria the Donations Committee has set forth.
