PERRY COUNTY — This year marks the 15th anniversary of the tragic event of 9/11. As a way to show appreciation for Perry County’s first responders, Cash Express presented each organization a cake and a poster board with signature of thanks from the community.
Assistant Store Mangers Tiffany Moore and Glenda Hollins set out from the Cash Express office in Hazard on Friday to drop off cakes to each of the organization’s location. An American Flag decorated each cake.
Each organization also received a poster board with their respective logo on it. The board contained signatures of businesses and many members of the community on it. A lot of the signatures also had words of thanks under each signature.
“Thank you for your service. We appreciate it. We appreciate you,” Hollins told each organization.
Hollins said she understood some of the dangers first responders face each day, because her husband is a police officer.
Moore and Hollins visited Kentucky State Police Post 13, Kentucky National Guard, Hazard Fire Department Station 2, Perry County EMS, Hazard Fire Department Station 1, Hazard Police Department, Perry County Sheriff’s Office and Perry County 911 Dispatch Center.
Each organization said how thankful and grateful they were for the support of the community. Local law enforcement agencies were especially grateful for the support the community has shown them.
Several police officers said it has been a turbulent time for law enforcement in the United States and they are grateful for the support the local community has given to them.
Cash Express wants Perry County’s first responders to know how thankful and appreciative Cash Express is of their service to the community of Perry County.
