On May 9, 2019 the Roselle Police Department and Fire Department helped to celebrate the grand opening of Wawa's newest store located at 1206 Rivington St. in Roselle. To help celebrate this highly anticipated event, the Roselle Police Department battled the Roselle Fire Department in a hoagie building contest. Hoagies for Heroes is a battle of will, bravery, and skill of sandwich building where police officers and firefighters went head to head to see which team could build the most hoagies, the Wawa way, in three minutes.
Residents joined the police and fire departments in the festivities welcoming Wawa to the community. The fire department earned bragging rights with their hoagie-making skills taking home the trophy. Wawa donated $1,000.00 in each department's name to Abraham Clark High School's Project Graduation.
