At Upton Fire / EMS Headquarters Thursday afternoon (12/14) members were awarded the Peanut Butter Challenge Trophy to proudly display for the next year.
For the past four years an Uxbridge Fire Department member, Cheryl Finn, has issued a challenge to local Fire departments to see who can collect the greatest amount of peanut butter which is then shipped to Haiti through the organization Mission of Hope International and distributed to needy children. Cheryl contacted Lt. Bonnie Lopez who spearheaded the campaign for Upton.
“We are very grateful for all that you first responders do and especially love the competitive nature of firefighters” said Renee Edme of Mission of Hope International
“We Go When Duty Calls”
