17th Annual Fill The Fire Trucks
Sat. Nov 23rd 2019

For the 17th year, firefighters from all five of Newtown's companies worked on a pre-Thanksgiving food collection for FAITH Food Pantry.

At the concluding of this year's five-hour event, shoppers at Newtown's Big Y and Stop & Shop supermarkets donated 55 turkeys, filled 72 boxes with nonperishables, and presented $2,536 in cash and gift cards to firefighters. As in years past, members of Sandy Hook, Hawleyville and Hook & Ladder were staged outside Big Y World Class Market on Queen Street, and members of Botsford and Dodgingtown staged at Stop & Shop in Sand Hill Plaza.

The annual event was again coordinated by SHVFR EMS Captain Karin Halstead.
