Exceptional Parents Unlimited (EPU) is a non-profit support organization, which provides community outreach to families who have mentally or physically challenged children.
They work with the children in groups developing social skills and provide support and education for the families to improve their quality of life during very trying conditions.
The Fresno Fire Department and Firefighters Union Local 753 have partnered with the EPU since 1994 to enhance the quality of life for special needs children.
The firefighters have volunteered to barbeque approximately 750 pounds of tri tip annually at the EPU’s major fundraising event the “Fiesta de Los Ninos”. Additionally, the firefighters donate a “Dinner for 10,” which is sold during the live auction. The event raises about $100,000 for the organization.
The firefighters also volunteered to assemble the playground equipment at the new facility.
If you are interested in volunteering for any of the EPU events, please call (559) 224-2000.
