Nature: Wawa’s Hoagies for Heroes

Location: Long Neck Location

 

On Friday, August 7th, the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company was invited to participate in the Wawa’s – Long Neck Grand Opening with a Hoagies for Heroes Event.

The Indian River Volunteer Fire Company was asked to participate in the Hoagies for Heroes Competition Event by Wawa’s Corporate Office.

At Wawa, we strive to build great relationships with the men and women who serve as our everyday heroes: our local firefighters, police officers, and emergency responders. To celebrate their bravery and commitment to our communities, we often hold Hoagies for Heroes contests as part of our milestone events – charity fundraising contests that benefit their charities of choice.

Wawa's Hoagies for Heroes contest pits our local heroes against each other in a hoagie building battle of bravery, skill… and sandwich making expertise. After going through a brief hoagie-building training course, the teams are challenged to build as many hoagies as possible in three minutes in the traditional “Wawa way.”  It’s truly incredible to watch the lettuce fly as our local heroes put on their aprons and furiously build as many hoagies as possible for the charities they’re representing. While the winning team always receives bragging rights and a trophy, both teams receive checks from Wawa towards the charity of their choice.

Both entities will be building on behalf of charitable causes – Indian River Charities and Delaware State Police Troop 7 Explorers.

The Indian River Volunteer Fire Company has chosen the Indian River VFC Charities which funds and coordinates contributions for the Boys & Girls Club of Oak Orchard-Riverdale as well as the Nana's Kids Campaign.
