Seventeen years ago from Tuesday, a horrific terrorist attack left the country in shock. The September 11, 2001 attack killed nearly 3,000 people and injured more than 6000 when four planes were hijacked by al-Qaida in coordinated attacks on the United States. Among the almost 3,000 killed in the attacks were 343 firefighters, 60 law enforcement officers and 8 emergency personnel.
The Council on Substance Abuse-NCADD (COSA-NCADD) is doing their part to honor local first responders by hosting a free breakfast and dinner. All firefighters, law enforcement officers, emergency personnel and department personnel to stop by their HOPE Recovery Community Center for free food and fellowship. This serves as a way to say thank you to area first responders.
“They provide service and protection for us around the clock, 24-7,” said Ebony Bowman, COSA-NCADD Behavioral Health Prevention Specialist. “So the least we could do is to take a second and thank our first responders for their service today and every day.”
The breakfast and dinner will be provided by COSA-NCADD staff, volunteers and local food establishments. Breakfast is served beginning at 8:00 A.M. and dinner at 6:00 P.M. at 3447 McGehee Road, Suite F, Montgomery, AL 36111.
