The First Responders Children’s Foundation Commemorative COVID-19 Response Patch recognizes the selfless dedication of first responders during the COVID-19 outbreak and honors first responder heroes on the frontlines during the pandemic.

The collectible patch displays service badges of first responder agencies including fire, police, and medical, and the added heart line pays tribute to nurses and medical personnel who are saving lives at great personal risk.

The patch is 5 inches in diameter and 100% embroidered with thread-cuts between letters. With the iron-on backing, you can support first responders by pressing the Commemorative Patch onto a T-shirt, sweatshirt, baseball cap, backpack, or gym bag.
The patch can also be displayed on a shelf or in a frame. Thank you for your support!

Today, approximately 225 first responders are killed in the line of duty each year, leaving behind their children and families.

It is our mission to support those first responder family members left behind, to help them feel the strength of our community, and to honor their loved ones who have made the ultimate sacrifice

First Responders Children’s Foundation also supports, promotes, and facilitates educational activities and programs.

Programs like 1stRCF NYPD Music Camp, the Gloucester Angling Camp and the Junior First Responders firefighting camp stimulate curiosity, confidence and the importance of following through on a commitment
