    A Successful Food Drive

    To the Editor:

    I would like to thank the very generous residents of Newtown for coming out on a beautiful Saturday to help the volunteer firefighters of Newtown “Fill the Fire Truck!” We had a very successful 12th year giving the FAITH Food Pantry 37 turkeys, two hams, 148 boxes of food, and over $800 in cash and gift cards.

    I would like to thank my fellow volunteer firefighters for coming out to collect and sort the goods. A big thank you for Stop & Shop and Big Y for allowing us to collect in front of their stores. Thank you for Curtis Packaging for the donation of boxes which helped us gather the food and deliver to the pantry. Thanks for the support and we look forward to seeing you next year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving!
