We can’t thank our medical professionals and first responders enough for their continued service and dedication during the difficult times COVID-19 has brought to many in our community. To express our appreciation, we delivered meals from Groucho’s Deli–Forest Drive to officers with the City of Forest Acres, City of Columbia, & Richland County Sheriff’s Dept., and firefighters at the Columbia Fire Dept.
We were also excited to share art supplies, toys, and meals with the staff and patients at Prisma Health Children’s Hospital and the Columbia Ronald McDonald House! It was a pleasure working with local businesses The Mad Platter, Be Beep A Toy Shop, Groucho’s Deli, and Eggs Up Grill to put these activities and meals together.
