Del. Firefighters Collect Canned Goods For Sandy Victims

Posted: Updated:

WMDT 47 NEWS - Delaware firefighters are helping fight the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

Throughout the state, volunteer fire stations collected canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butters, canned tuna fish, raviolis, spaghetti sauces and baby foods for New York and New Jersey victims of the superstorm.  Residents were able to drop off the goods to their local fire stations between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.

According to a press release, Delaware Volunteer Firefighter's Association President Charles Boyer said, "It has become obvious that food banks in New Jersey and New York are being stretched beyond the limit.  We want to show our support of the people who are suffering in those areas by collecting canned goods, and long shelf-life products that can be taken to their Food Banks as a relief effort from all Delawareans."   

At Seaford Fire Station, crew members told us that donations came through the doors in numbers throughout the day.
