Hy-Vee honors ongoing support of first responders with water drive

Old Glory waves from the top of the Perry Volunteer Fire Department's ladder truck Monday in the parking lot of the Perry Hy-Vee, a reminder of the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001, and a call to honor our emergency responders everywhere.

In an effort to honor the memory of the victims of 9/11 and show gratitude to America’s ongoing support of all emergency personnel and first responders, the Perry Hy-Vee is sponsoring a water drive.

“Show your support for Perry’s firefighters and firefighters everywhere,” said Hy-Vee Community Events Coordinator Larry Vodenik, “by donating bottled water to the Perry Fire Department.”

In memory of the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the U.S. annually observes Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance.

“This is what Perry is doing to remember and support 9/11 as well as the Perry firefighters,” Vodenik said. “Just drop off the water at your Perry Hy-Vee today.
It need not be Hy-Vee water. Just show that you remember.”

The Perry Volunteer Fire Department has its ladder truck topped by a U.S. flag on display in Hy-Vee’s parking lot to remind everyone not to forget 9/11, he said.
