Ladies Auxiliary Bristol Volunteer Fire Department Scholarship

Each year, the Ladies Auxiliary awards a $2,000 scholarship to a son or daughter of a member of the Bristol Fire Department. The Ladies Auxiliary Bristol Volunteer Fire Department Scholarship was established to provide a scholarship to a resident of Bristol who is a graduating senior of an accredited high school to attend any degree-conferring post-secondary educational institution.The scholarship is administered by the Rhode Island Foundation.


Each year, the Auxiliary helps a local family, by providing assistance in the form of gifts and other necessities during the holiday season. For more information or to nominate a family, email the Auxiliary.

Holiday Dinner

Each year, the Ladies Auxiliary prepares a holiday dinner for all of Bristol's Volunteer Fire Department on the 1st Wednesday of December, as a way to thank them for their service to the Town. The Auxiliary welcomes volunteers and donations to help to defray the costs of this worthy demonstration of appreciation. To donate, or to volunteer, please send an email to the Ladies Auxiliary.
