Redneck Bar & Grill was contacted by KSST early this week to help an anonymous donor send lunch to paramedics and EMTs on duty at Hopkins County EMS. Zane Darling, owner of Redneck said, “This was a selfless act of an individual to thank those serving our community during these tough times.” He continued by saying his staff was proud to prepare and deliver the meals. EMS Director, Brent Smith accepted the meals on behalf of his staff, as they were all out on calls when the delivery appeared. Smith said, “he and his staff were honored that someone would think of them during this crisis.” He also stated that, “his staff is proud to continue to serve the community, even during this tough time.”
Our medical professionals are working harder than ever and on the front line of this pandemic. KSST was proud to help facilitate this kind gesture from someone who has had a good past experience with our local EMS. In this rare moment of our lives, consider the plight of others as we all fight this crisis. Check on your neighbors and co-workers, friends and family, and realize there are those having to fight this fight head-on.
