Very Successful Fill The Fire Truck Event
Sat. Nov 21st 2020

With an additional location to collect donations, this year's Fill The Fire Trucks was among the most successful to date. 

Firefighters from Sandy Hook, Hawleyville and Hook & Ladder once again staged in front of Big Y World Class Market on Queen Street and Botsford members were in Sand Hill Plaza on South Main Street, which are both traditional collection points. Dodgingtown staged outside its firehouse, on Dodgingtown Road, offering a new location for the public to drop off items to prepare Thanksgiving meals and other items for FAITH Food Pantry. 

Due to COVID-19, additional tables were set up this year, to collect donations as they were dropped off by the public. Items were then sorted by firefighters, following social distancing protocols.

Firefighters also wore facemasks during the event.

At the end of the five-hour collection, firefighters delivered 177 boxes full of food, 80 turkeys, and $3,863 in financial donations to the food pantry.
