Local First Responders Make Care Packages



    The Best Holiday Gifts of 2017

    Local First responders are coming together to assemble care packages to send to those affected by the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma.

    Fire, Police, and the Echo Hose Ambulance Corps in Shelton will be assembling the packages to send to first responders in Oklahoma. The Oklahoma first responders will distribute the care packages to those in need.

    The first responders will be at the Walmart on Bridgeport Road in Shelton until 4 p.m. today collecting items.

    They are asking for non-perishable food items and toothbrushes, shampoo, soap, adult sized t-shirts, socks, underwear and tank tops.

    Included in each care package will also be a card to show support and thanks for the service the Oklahoma first responders did in the midst of the tragic tornado.

    Items may also be dropped off at the Shelton Police Department, any of the towns four fire houses and at the Echo Hose Ambulance.
