The Warwick Community Ambulance Junior Corps members will be out in full force this holiday season. Their first big event is a “Stuff the Bus” food drive. This will take place on Sat., Dec. 1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Warwick ShopRite, located at 153 Rte. 94 S. in Warwick and at the Florida Quick Chek, located at 172 N. Main St. in Florida, NY.
The goal is to stuff the ambulance and the bus with non perishables to supply both the Warwick and Florida food pantries. This is the fourth year the junior corps member have organized this event. Prior years have been a huge success at both locations, bringing in over $1,000 worth of items for both food pantries.
