If you are going to be working 3rd shift as a first responder then you need all of these energy drinks in your system at some point in your career! I want to thank the Beta Club at Hickory Ridge High School for their recent donation to FR1. They collected 5 large boxes of energy drinks, Gatorade drinks, protein bars, candy, gum, and other goodies for our first responders. The students also included over 100 handwritten thank you cards for our first responders. I had the privilege to drop these items off at several local police and fire departments. Our local first responders seemed surprised and very appreciative for this random act of kindness by the students.
This allowed our local high school to get some great exposure and also helped spread the word about FR1 to our local first responders. I want to give a special thank you to Kristi Russell who is a teacher at HRHS. This was her idea and she spearheaded the whole project. Kristi and her husband Russ are faithful supporters of FR1 and we are very grateful for them.
Please reach out to me if you have any ideas of how we can provide additional emotional and spiritual support for our first responders. It is an honor to serve our men and women who serve and protect our communities. I thank each and every one of you all for your prayer and support and for joining me in this important mission.
