The Faternal Order of Police
The FOP Survivors Fund is a non-profit organization located in Philadelphia, PA. It raises money for families of Philadelphia Police Officers who have been tragically injured or who have passed away.
Markedly, since its inception, Chickie’s & Pete’s has donated over $150,000 to the FOP Survivors Fund. This is thanks to the monumental success of their event.
