Papa Gino’s recently surprised firefighters in Plainville with free pizzas through its Fire Safety Month programming. Usually, the pizzas would feed families who attend various Fire Safety Month events, such as open houses and “touch-a-truck” tours at fire stations. The in-person events are not happening this year, so Papa Gino’s donated food to firefighters as a sign of appreciation for the work they do in the community.
