Local businesses and families are joining together to make sure those working on the front lines of COVID-19 are getting the food they need to keep on fighting.
It is not known when or who started #feedthefightlamarcounty, however, it didn’t take long for residents to catch on and join in.
“It’s amazing to see our community come together during these tough times to support each other,” said Lamar County Adopt-A-Cop president Amanda Willows. “Police officers, firefighters, and EMS are out there coming in contact with the public every single day putting not only themselves but their families at risk also. This is the least we can do and I’m so proud of our community.”
Below is a list of businesses that have stepped up to help.
“Let’s show our support for these businesses also by continuing to use their drive-thru or curbside services,” added Willows.
