The Methuen Fire Department and Methuen Firefighters Local 1691 teamed up with Columbia Gas to hand out 88 coats, hats, and gloves to children as part of Operation Warm at the Greater Lawrence Community Action Council Head Start, 24 Gill Ave. in Methuen.
The kids were thrilled to receive their new winter gear, meet our firefighters, and even get to see and play on Methuen Fire trucks. The firefighters did a great job with the kids and made it an incredibly memorable event.
“This is such a great initiative for our department,” Methuen Fire Chief Tim Sheehy said.
“It was great to see our firefighters interact with these children. We are always happy to get out in the community and be involved in worthwhile causes like this, especially when it benefits kids.”
