Cedar Falls firefighters buy Thanksgiving meals for those in need

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

Finding more than one way to protect and serve. 

The Cedar Falls fire department partnered with the Cedar Valley Hy-Vees.

Together they bought thanksgiving meals for four families in need. 

KWWL joined the fire department when they went on their shopping trip. 

They made sure to get everything from desserts and side dishes, to turkey and ham.

The fire department said they started doing this a few years ago, and hope it will continue to grow.

The firefighters paid for two of the meals they bought, and the Cedar Valley Hy-Vees paid for the other two.

The families then came to the fire station and picked up the food later in the day. 

The Cedar Falls fire station also plans to help some kids pick out their Christmas gifts at Walmart in a few weeks.
