Sweet treats and kind notes left for first responders in remembrance of 9/11

By  | 

HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - 18 years after 9/11, Cash Express is still working to honor those lives lost and those who fill their shoes today.

Every September 11th, they take cakes and a community signed poster to the fire stations, police offices, ambulance services and 911 centers to show their appreciation for those who serve.

"Our company just likes to do a little something for them to show them that they are appreciated," said Glenda Hollins the manager at cash express.

It is a small show of gratitude to the men and women who put their lives on the line for us every day.

"These people sacrifice their lives every day so that we are able to walk around every day and make our own choices and not someone making them for us," said Hollins.

This year's round of remembrance meant a little bit more as they stopped to honor the life of Loren "Doc" Holiday, a former KSP trooper who died in a car crash just more than a week ago.

"My husband is a former policeman and I can't imagine what she and her son are going through," said Hollins.

Every building they stopped in pictures were taken with first responders and smiles and laughs were shared.
