SOUTH DISTRICT FIREFIGHTERS AND MIDDLETOWN RESIDENTS MAKE STUFF-A-TRUCK A HUGE SUCCESS
On November 11, 2011, members of the International Association of Firefighters, Local 3918 (South District firefighters) sponsored their bi-annual Stuff-a-Truck, gathering more than 3900 pounds of food for the Amazing Grace Food Pantry.Firefighters from South District and their families volunteered their time from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the parking lot of Stop & Shop on East Main Street in Middletown, soliciting donations from shoppers for Amazing Grace Food Pantry. Despite the cold wind, people gave cheerfully, stopping to chat with the firefighters. The effort also raised $600 in cash donations. South District Firefighters hold the Stuff-a-Truck event twice a year, once in November, once in April.
A check in the amount of $600 was presented to the food pantry on Monday, November 21, 2011.
