Oswego Firefighters Local 126 assists with Human Concerns Thanksgiving baskets

Oswego Firefighters Local 126 members and the Human Concerns Center came together Tuesday for their annual Thanksgiving Dinner delivery event providing local families with food in time for the holiday. Started more than three decades ago, the tradition “illustrates the connection to the community” local firefighters have, according to Oswego Fire Chief Randy Griffin, who noted there were more than 150 dinners given out during this year’s event. “This is something we have done with retirees who come out from retirement in the cold to help with this important event. It supports the community and that’s really at our core — helping people,” Griffin said Tuesday.
