After hearing from a local EMT about the struggles he faces, a group of teens at Asbury United Methodist Church wanted to do something about it.

The teens got together and decorated bags, wrote notes of appreciation, and filled them with cookies, as a way to be supportive of first responders in the community, and to thank them for their bravery and sacrifices.

Today, some of the teens delivered care packages to emergency medical technicians working at the Guilbeau Road station of Acadian Ambulance.

“It means so much to us that we can do something for these people that do so much for us,” said Marshall Cagle, a member of the group. “They risk their lives, and risk going out and missing their families, and missing whatever they have going on so they can save and report and make sure we are safe. “
