Wednesday is the final day to drop off canned food and non-perishable items at Danbury fire houses. The Danbury Firefighters Union Local 801 has been holding a collection at the career fire stations since November 10th. Lt Chip Daly says they will gladly collect any last minute donations today.
All of the items then go toward holiday basket programs and food pantries.
The collection bins can be found at fire houses on New Street, Osborne Street, Eagle Road, South King Street and Kenosia Avenue Extension. Donations are also being collected in the Fire Marshal's office at City Hall, and Sikorsky Federal Credit Union on Main Street.
Local 801 has been holding this food drive annually for more than 30 years.
