Melrose, FL - Melrose firefighters partnered with the Lake Area Ministries Food Pantry and Feeding Northeast Florida charities on November 5th to create a food distribution point. The event was successful in distributing food to over 200 families in need of assistance. To speed up the delivery of the food, a drive thru process was used with cars pulling up next to the station's auxiliary bays, which did not hinder apparatus response from the main bays. Melrose firefighters are proud to be a partner with local agencies that are making a difference in the lives of the citizens that we serve.
