SOUTHPORT, N.Y. (WENY) -- The Southport Fire Department hosted Doug's Fish Fry To Go this afternoon to help raise money for a good cause. The food truck hailing from the Cortland-based seafood spot had those fryers going to help support the Bring The Heat Athletics Foundation.
The non-profit grants funding to area youth programs, to help pay for things such as competitions and education. This fundraising stop is just one of many for the truck across the Southern Tier this month.
During today's stop in Southport I spoke with Mare O'Rand, one of the workers running the truck, and she told me, "We encourage as many people as possible to come out when we are in the area, as it is for a good cause. The fundraiser changes everytime we are here. It's always for a different organization, and it's great that the Southport Fire Department was nice enough to allow us to use their parking lot and facilities today."
Looking ahead to Thursday, Doug's will be setting up shop at the Spencer Fire Department, to help raise money for the Spencer-Van Etten Class of 2019 Graduation Project.
