Members of the Friendship Veterans Fire Engine Association wrapped up a 6-week period of delivering over 600 meals to Alexandria firefighters with a donation of lunches June 5 from Foster’s Grille.
Delivering the meals were Foster’s Grille owners Bruce and Michael Catts and Friendship Firehouse board members Catherine Weinraub and Marion Moon.
Union Street Public House participated in the Feed the Fight program with donations from Moon, former City Councilman Frank Fannon, members of the Old Dominion Boat Club and other individuals.
“The Friendship Veterans Fire Engine Association has wrapped up their six weeks of feeding the local firefighters,” said board president Joe Shumard. “Each week, through sponsors, we fed approximately 90 firefighters. We thank them so much for their service and being out there on the front line.”
