Ukrainian Firefighters Equipment Fund

    • $

Four Middletown agencies co-sponsored a “Tactical Medical Supplies for Ukraine Firefighters” donation drive – Middletown South Fire District, Wesleyan University, Community Health Center, and the Community Foundation of Middlesex County.

“Over the past several weeks, we have all witnessed the tragic events happening in communities across Ukraine, where relentless bombings of non-military targets have caused thousands of injuries and deaths,” said South Fire District Chief James Trzaski. “Emergency responders have risked their own lives to save others by being on the front lines of providing critical assistance to those in need. We are seeking to provide the highest level of support to these brave men and women.”

Donation drives took place on Saturday, April 9 and Sunday, April 10, 2022, at Middletown South Fire District, 445 Randolph Road, Middletown. Individuals and organizations from across the state helped with equipment and medical supplies. Generous individuals also supported the Ukrainian Firefighters Fund at CFMC.
