Mobile Co. Sheriff's food truck heads to Carolinas to feed Florence first responders
MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) —
Lending a helping hand and warm meals to first responders.
Mobile County Sheriff's deputies are packing up their food truck preparing to lend a helping hand through the devastation of Florence.
The plan is to leave Mobile County at 6 am Sunday morning. Their destination depends on where help is needed after Florence hits.
Regardless of where they set up camp, the mission is always the same. The MSCO is devoted to supporting fellow men and women in blue who are working 24 hours a day to save lives and assist during the aftermath of Florence
The MCSO got this mobile food truck three days before hurricane Harvey. Immediately after taking this truck to Houston following Harvey, they saw the power a warm meal could bring to fellow men and woman in blue who are battling the devastation of a hurricane.
During Harvey, a team of deputies served 14,000 meals in 11 days. What happened during that experience is what has everyone ready to take off this Sunday.
“It was unbelievable,” MCSO’s Lori Myles said, adding “After it was over we even had some of Huston Police Department come down here and present to our guys who went down there. They just have this incredible bond.”
The MSCO plans to keep the community involved and updated throughout the journey on social media.
