A Big Thank You! WRFD Stuff A Bus
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter

By Captain Thomas Whelan
January 15, 2019

All the members of the Wading River Fire Department want to thank the entire community for the unbelievable success of this year’s “Stuff-A-Bus” food drive. On the morning of Sunday, January 6, 2019, Fire Department delivered a completely full school bus of food to seven local church pantries. It was the conclusion of its Christmas Holiday “Stuff-A-Bus” food drive campaign. The response from the Wading River community was so overwhelming, that the pantries of each and every one of the seven churches overflowed .

The “Stuff-A-Bus” campaign runs between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. This year, more than ever, residents helped to fill the big yellow school bus by driving food directly to the bus itself, which was parked in the fire department’s parking lot and decorated with Christmas lights. The bus was generously donated, for the month, by First Student Bus Company.

Chief Anthony Bitalvo thanked the many members who helped distribute the food. “As volunteers, we like to give our time to help the Wading River and surrounding communities. Thanks also goes to our fellow firefighter in Rocky Point, who helped us this year.”

Department President, Mike Hammer said “this year we have to really thank the efforts of the Wading River Boy Scouts, Troop 94, who spent an entire Saturday collecting food. Also we have to thank Rich at R & K Precision Autoworks and Jesse from Defined Health & Fitness gym for allowing us to place collection bins in their establishments.”

Volunteer firefighters and EMS personnel delivered numerous bags and boxes of groceries to the food pantries at St. John The Baptist Roman Catholic Church, Wading River Congregational Church, St. Anselm’s Episcopal Church, North Shore United Methodist Church, Saints Peter & Paul Roman Catholic Church, Trinity Evangelical Church in Rocky Point, and Living Waters Full Gospel Church in Riverhead. Captain Tom Whelan, ran the “Stuff-A-Bus” program this year.
