Federal Agents are often in harm’s way protecting the nations’ citizens and borders. The Federal Enforcement Homeland Security Foundation (FESHF) provides immediate financial support through its Grants Program and these funds are often used to pay for funeral costs or children’s needs. The event raises essential funds to provide immediate financial relief to families in crisis or who have suffered a tragedy.
