Extra Special Deliveries



Newport firefighters made special holiday food deliveries to the Martin Luther King Community Center and St. Joseph’s Church this week, loaded with donations collected from city employees. Area fire stations served as collection sites for the food items, and generous monetary contributions from Newport Firefighter Local 1080, the Newport Firefighter Pension Association, and individuals allowed the firefighters to purchase four overflowing shopping carts to add to the bounty. The group delivered everything from soup to nuts – and plenty of turkeys and pies – to help ensure a hearty Thanksgiving dinner for all.
