Eleven tasty local businesses have teamed up to “serve it up” for Warwick Township Fire Company’s Capital Campaign to build a new firehouse. Township restaurants and eating establishments including Brother’s Pizza, Dunkin’ Donuts, Giovanni’s Pizza, Jamison Pour House, Love It! Frozen Yogurt , McDonald’s, New China, Randazzo’s Pizza, Subway, Warwick Tavern, and Wild Ginger II have joined forces in A Taste of Warwick summer food event to help raise funds to build the new firehouse.
From now through the end of August, the participating businesses will donate a percentage of each food order to the Warwick Township Fire Company Capital Campaign. Some restaurants (New China, Dunkin’ Donuts, McDonald’s, and Love It! require coupons which can be found on the Warwick Township Fire Company website). The other restaurants do not require a coupon or mention of A Taste of Warwick.
Frank Randazzo, owner of Randazzo’s Pizza, says he is more than happy to participate in A Taste of Warwick. “No one is more deserving of our support than our police and volunteer firefighters,” said Randazzo. “It is our privilege to help them reach their goal of building a new firehouse to help them better serve the needs of our community.”
Construction of a new, modern, and more efficient firehouse has been underway since early April and is expected to be completed by early next year. The new firehouse is an integral part of Warwick Township Fire Company’s long-term plan to meet the needs of future generations of Warwick Township residents and businesses. The facility will have an enlarged training area to educate the volunteers in a more efficient way, provide sleeping quarters to increase response time in extreme weather, add energy efficient components for greater savings, and alleviate response time challenges brought on by the need to double stack the fire trucks. Overall, the design will meet the company’s goal to build a safer facility that will keep up with the projected growth of the community and help recruit future volunteers – many of whom are currently students in the township elementary and middle schools.
