POMEROY — Firefighters may typically be thought of as the men and women who show up to help when there is a fire or an accident.
But in Meigs County the men and women of the volunteer fire departments are much more in their county and respective communities.
The Meigs County Firefighter’s Association and the Pomeroy Firemen’s Association recently made donations to help those in the community during the holiday season.
The Meigs County Firefighter’s Association and Pomeroy Firemen’s Association presented a donation to the Meigs County Department of Job and Family Services to assist with their Angel Tree Project.
The Meigs County Firefighter’s Association also donated to Meigs EMS for their annual holiday community service project.
In addition, the Pomeroy Firemen’s Association 5th annual food drive collected 1,013 non-perishable food items and $451 in cash donations which were given to the Meigs Cooperative Parish.
