In addition to many events the Foundation attends during the course of a year, be it being present at a National or Provincial Fire Fighters or Fire Chiefs Convention or a local or regional festival, none is more enjoyable, rewarding and emotionally stimulating as the Annual Christmas event held each year at the burned children's Plastie clinic of Montreal's Ste-Justine Hospital.

Each Christmas, since its inception, the Foundation, with the generous help of several of its suppliers, has been proud to help make the festive season a special time of year for these young burn patients. 

Volunteers, representatives and Executives of the Foundation give out presents and souvenirs to the young patients and mingle and interact with the parents or guardians of the children.

All in all, a good time is had by most but the grim fact remains that the children present at these festivities are also, for the most part, outpatients and their reason for being at Ste-Justine Hospital on that special day is also for treatment; a treatment that is difficult and often painful. Yet, looking at their young smiling faces, one is in awe at their courage and understands why burn victims are so often referred to as "Reservoirs of Strength"
