Salvation Army Helps Emergency Workers Enjoy the Holiday


For many of us, Thanksgiving means spending time with family and eating a lot of turkey. For others, it means working to keep you safe. Many emergency responders were on call Thurssday, but that didn’t stop them from enjoying a taste of Thanksgiving.

Almost every Thanksgiving for Central EMS employees its serving the injured, Instead of serving of a plate of turkey. But this year is different for these emergency responders.

“We respond to people in need. That is the worst day of their life,” Central EMS worker, Shawna Ross said.

“Its great to know that we have the support of our community.”

That support served up on a plate thanks to the Salvation Army.

“Throughout Fayetteville and Bentonville we just wanted to deliver a little Thanksgiving feast for the people who are really supporting us day in and day out,” Lindsey Strong with the Salvation Army said.

The Salvation Army delivered over 100 meals to emergency responders Thursday. A small gesture that put the thanks in Thanksgiving for these hard working employees.

“We are just very thankful especially on this day that they have chosen to treat us and kind of pay us back. pay it forward,” Ross said.
