Abstract:
Surrounded by dozens of school kids wearing red plastic helmets, Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta accepted a check yesterday for the $411,000 collected from children across the U.S. and in other countries.
"This is very touching," said Capt. Thomas O'Neill of Engine 280, which hosted the event and will receive the new truck to replace one that is 11 years old.
