DODGE CITY, Kansas – The Dodge City Fire Department has partnered with Manna House, Genesis Family Health, Salvation Army, Friendship Feast, and Seven Baskets Full Ministry to allow for donations of pantry items, bottled water, and hygiene products to be dropped off at Fire Station 1 at 201 Soule Street, or Fire Station 2 at 709 S. 14th Street. The Fire Department will work directly with the entities to get the donations delivered to them if community members are unable to drop off with them directly. Drop offs at either DCFD Station will need to be scheduled by calling at 620-225-8187. 

According to Dodge City Fire Chief Ken Spencer, the partnerships came about as a result of the unpresented times that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused and the impact that that it has had on the local food pantries in not only supply, but hours of operation.

“We wanted to show our support for our community and allow for an alternative drop off location with the end goal still being the same,” Spencer said.  “That goal is making sure these pantries are getting the supplies they need in order to help the community. Know that we are all in this together and from our family to yours, we want to thank the public in advance for any assistance they can provide in helping keep these food pantries stocked.”
