Help stuff a truck for local families in need

Winchester Fire and Rescue Department (WFRD) wants to make a difference again this holiday season and directly help the people they serve who may be in need.  Once again, WFRD has teamed up with the Winchester Department of Social Services and the Winchester Fire and Rescue Foundation for the second annual Stuff-A-Truck campaign.  Click here to view the 2016 schedule.

Some children in our public schools often go to school without winter gear to properly keep them warm, so Fire and Rescue and Social Services personnel and volunteers will be collecting coats, gloves, hats, scarves and socks for children 4-18. All winter gear items will be donated to Winchester Public Schools to distribute as needed to students.

Healthy food is always needed, especially non-perishable proteins (peanut butter, canned meats, etc.).  Our local food banks strive to feed as many people as possible. Therefore, all food collected during this event will be divided among Highland Food Pantry, C-CAP and the Salvation Army.

Since the holidays are coming up, toys and gifts for children of all ages, especially teens, are requested and will be donated to C-CAP and the Salvation Army.

These community organizations directly serve Winchester residents. The City is grateful to the staff of Winchester Fire and Rescue Department and Social Services as well as the many volunteers from the City’s four volunteer fire stations that will help with the collection and delivery effort.
