Firefighter asking community to help send meals to frontline COVID-19 workers.

Donations can be made through PayPal here.

FREE SOIL — Firefighter Broc Cameron had an idea. He wanted to send over meals to the people working the frontlines on the COVID-19 crisis — hospital personnel, nursing homes, firefighters, EMS and law enforcement, among others. Cameron sent out a Facebook post on his personal page and the response was incredible. He is calling it Community Cares.

On Sunday, thanks to many generous donations, Cameron delivered meals to the Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital Emergency Department. Today, lunches were sent to Medilodge in Ludington along with the two Life EMS ambulance stations in Pere Marquette Township and Scottville. On Tuesday, he will deliver meals to the Life EMS crews in Hart and Shelby along with the crew at Manistee Department of Public Safety fire station. He will deliver to another shift at Manistee fire station on Wednesday and Thursday and also plans on delivering to EMS crews in Manistee County, Mason County Sheriff’s Office, and some adult foster care homes later this week.

Cameron serves on the Grant Township Fire Department and Free Soil/Meade Fire Department. 

“It’s all about helping out others,” he said. “These people will give their lives to help our communities during normal times and now they have increased their level of risk significantly during this COVID-19 crisis. They deserve our thanks. This is the least we can do.”

Cameron said several businesses have stepped up to donate food, but those businesses need local support as well. Donations will help offset the costs.

“These businesses are taking a hit. Helping them out by supporting Community Cares helps those on the frontline and helps keep local businesses alive.”

Donations can be made through PayPal here.

“There are a lot of people out there keeping us safe. Let’s make sure they are taken care of,” Cameron said.
