Helping Oklahoma: Shelton first responders seek food, clothes donations

Local first responders are teaming up to support their brothers/sisters in Moore, Okla. in wake of the tragic tornado that recently hit the area. When tragedy hits, first responders reach out to support each other no matter where it occurs.

Echo Hose Ambulance, along with the Shelton Fire Department and Police Department, are assembling care packages that will be sent to the EMS, fire and police departments of Moore, Okla. Donations may be dropped off at local departments.

Seeking food, clothing, personal care products

The various departments are looking for assistance from the public in collecting items. If someone would like to help they can donate new items including, but not limited to, non-perishable easy to pack food, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, soap, adult sized t-shirts, socks, underwear, and tank tops.

We are also including cards to show support and thanks for the service that EMTs, firefighters and police officers do even in the midst of personal struggle.

The items and support cards can be dropped off at the Shelton Police Department, the four Shelton fire houses and at Echo Hose Ambulance.
