The Streamwood Guns n Hoses Association was founded in 1998 and is made up of active and retired members of the Streamwood Police and Fire departments. The organization was created to give back to the communities in which the men and women of those departments serve.
It is our mission to give back to the community that we serve. Our goal is to aid individual residents of our community who need assistance due to unforeseen tragedy, extensive medical costs, or other hardships, and to provide additional assistance to other not-for-profit organizations that benefit our community. Each year, the police officers play a basketball game against the firefighters to raise money. We spend a large portion of our proceeds each year on bringing gifts to needy families around the holidays including necessities such as food and clothing, but also toys for families that have children.
Streamwood Guns n Hoses Association is a registered 501(c)(3) and all donations are completely tax deductible.
Over the last 18 years, the Streamwood Guns n' Hoses Association has donated over $65,000 to area families and local organizations.
