Colorado Firefighters

The fire services’ dedication to our Colorado communities has in large part gone unrewarded. Restoration Logistics has first hand experience with this commitment and would like to recognize those vast efforts. To that end Restoration Logistics has created a scholarship that is open to any child or grandchild of an active Colorado firefighter or support personnel that is a senior in high school or a first year college student. The scholarship was founded in 2004 with the goal of providing scholarships for higher education to outstanding children and grandchildren of  Colorado’s active fire service personnel. This scholarship is intended to reward students for exceptional achievement, above and beyond their peers.
