ALTOONA, Pa (WTAJ)– The Logan Township Volunteer Firefighters continue to provide Thanksgiving meals for families in need for the holiday.

This has been a tradition with the fire company for the past 13 years. This year deliveries went to 159 people across 37 different families within the area.

Through their multiple volunteers, they were able to pack the boxes of meals within a short timeframe. The meals feature a variety of Thanksgiving favorites, including turkey and pumpkin pie.

This project was done with the help of Xerox, Burgmeiers Hauling, and Giant Eagle. Logan Township Supervisor Ed Frontino says that the firefighters enjoy doing these events and seeing the reactions from the families.

“This is one of those times of the year they get to do something that is community service, that has a really great outcome and is a pleasant experience,” Frontino said.
