Check presented to county law enforcement agents
At first it was Pizzas for Police.
Now, it’s Firefighter Fridays.
The efforts of a local business owner and hungry patrons has led to a donation to law enforcement agencies in Warren County and will lead to a similar donation early next year.
West End Takeout owners Ian and Megan Lawson presented a check Thursday for $502 to the Fraternal Order of Police Warren County Lodge.
Accepting that donation on behalf of City of Warren Police, Conewango Township Police, Youngsville Borough Police, Warren County Sheriff’s Office, and Warren County Adult Probation were City of Warren Police Patrolman Tiffany Dyke and Capt. Jeff Dougherty and Warren County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Chuck Fetzeck.
The owners offered a promotion in which they would donate $1 for every large and extra-large pizza sold on Fridays during the month of November.
For December, the promotion continues, but the target is different.
The Lawsons expressed their thanks to City of Warren firefighters and pledged a dollar for each large and extra-large pizza sold on Fridays in December to the Warren Firefighters Local No. 1835.
“It’s for their service,” Ian Lawson said. “It’s a small price to pay for all that they do.”
According to Firefighter Kurtis Maynard, the donation to the union’s fund will help provide updated workout equipment for the firefighters.
