Domino Sugar Funds New Kitchen at Locust Point Fire Station

Today, the Baltimore City Fire Department unveiled a new kitchen at the Locust Point Fire Station at 1001 E. Fort Ave. The project was funded by a $60,000 donation from American Sugar Refining, Inc., a member of ASR Group, which owns the Domino Sugar Refinery in Locust Point.

Domino Sugar employees also provided the firefighters and paramedics with three custom-made Domino Sugar tins filled with granulated powdered sugar and light brown sugar made at the refinery to use in the renovated kitchen.

“The kitchen renovation was a gesture of thanks and recognition for the vital role fire department personnel fulfill in protecting the community,” said Peter O’Malley, vice president of corporate relations for ASR Group, in a press release. “Domino Sugar is happy to be a part of the Baltimore community, and we thank the brave and dedicated firefighters and paramedics of the Baltimore City Fire Department for their service.”

“We are immensely grateful for the generous investment made by Domino Sugar and its employees in support of our firefighters and paramedics’ well-being,” said Baltimore City Fire Chief James W. Wallace. “This act of kindness and consideration not only strengthens our partnership, but also enhances our ability to serve and protect the community. We are truly touched by this gesture of support.”
