Cumberland Farms is hosting a fundraiser to support the 80 people displaced. Running through January 17th at 11:59 p.m., the Cumberland Farms located at 4548 North Main Street in Fall River will donate 20 cents from every hot coffee, iced coffee and Chill Zone beverage (fountain and frozen) purchased directly to the Fall River Firefighters Wives Association. Monetary donations will also be accepted at the register, and checks and gift cards can be mailed to Firefighters Wives Association, P.O. Box 423, Somerset, MA 02726.

According to Director of Brand Strategy and Advertising at Cumberland Farms, David Heilbronner, “Cumberland Farms has tremendous appreciation for the communities we serve — and we were deeply saddened to hear about the recent fire in Fall River. Our thoughts go out to those affected, and we hope our donation will help lend some support to those who are struggling during this difficult time.”
