VIDEO: A unique, local corporate approach to helping volunteer fire companies is continuing this year, with help once again from a well-known name from the Penn State football program. “For those of you from out of state, Pennsylvania is one of the few states served by volunteer fire companies for the most part. Think about it. They volunteer to run into burning buildings, collapsing buildings; doing things we see on TV and are amazed by.” State Representative Kerry Benninghoff spoke at the “Fuel the Cause" event on Friday, which is now in its fifth year. The event is a fundraiser for volunteer fire companies in eleven area counties. Helping the cause again this year is Penn State collegiate football hall of famer Lavar Arrington.
