Block the Pockets

The SJRFD and the St. John’s Firefighters Association Local 1075 are asking the community to “Block the Pockets” in our fire trucks on Sunday, February 10 in support of the Community Food Sharing Association.

We know firsthand, as firefighters, the impact and devastation that a fire can cause to individuals and the community at large.  As proud Newfoundlanders, Labradorians and firefighters, we always reach out to help our neighbors in time of need and so the time is here!!  Help us “Block the Pockets” full of food for our community.

Drop by one of our fire stations anytime between 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Sunday, February 10, meet our firefighters, tour the stations and place a non-perishable food item in one of our fire truck pockets!
