SFD Firefighters Help Amazing Grace Food Pantry
Posted: January 13, 2010

On Friday the 5th and Saturday the 6th of November, 2010, Firefighters from South Fire District Firefighters Local 3918 IAFF, Middletown, held their semi-annual Stuff-A-Truck food drive at Stop & Shop on East Main Street in Middletown. With the support of the South Fire District, Firefighters and their families collected food, gift cards and monies for the Amazing Grace Food Pantry. All food donated helps out families here in our community. It is very rewarding having our families involved in collecting items that are needed to keep the pantry going.

Firefighters stood outside in the cold handing out slips of paper, letting the shoppers know what items were needed most at the pantry. Five truckloads of food were collected. Stop & Shop has been a great supporter and help with this as well, allowing us to host this event at their store.

Monies collected at the food drive, by filling the boot, were presented at the Pantry's open house, held on December 9th, 2010, at their new location. Local 3918 President James Mastroianni presented a check for $800.00 to the Pantry.

Firefighters from South Fire District Firefighters Local 3918 IAFF, and our families would like to thank all that came by and supported our food drive. It was an amazing turnout and show of support by all for The Amazing Grace Food Pantry.

Thank You again,

South Fire District Firefighters Local 3918 IAFF
