The Llanerch Fire Co. has $1,000 to put toward training, thanks to a gift from the new Giant supermarket the department will serve.
The fire company is one of five area charities and organizations presented with checks for $1,000 last week as part of the Giant's grand opening celebration. Llanerch Fire Co. Chief Chris Millay says "the thousand dollar donation will more than likely go to training, either through the classroom materials or actual fire fighting materials themselves."
The new Giant and the entire new Quarry Center shopping center are now part of the Llanerch Fire Company's coverage area. Llanerch is one of five fire companies that serve Haverford Township.
