James Cook Relief Fund

In 1993 the James Cook Memorial Humanitarian Relief Fund was established to provide financial support to FPS employees & Association members in need. James Cook, who retired in 1988, cared deeply for all members of the “FPS family” and served as a mentor to many.

This fund is a reflection of the Association’s purpose, as well as, the values of the individual it honors. Since its inception more than $117,000 has been distributed to individuals in need of financial assistance. Fundraisers such as raffles and auctions as well as donations have continued to provide funds to assist individuals and their families. The primary fundraiser for the Fund, the Arnold Kuenzler & Family Annual Auction, is held during the Annual Gathering.
