GALLERY | Seniors at Bethany honor first responders at 2nd annual breakfast

Residents from the Cottages at Bethany had the privilege of hosting our local first responders for breakfast on Friday morning. It was a heartwarming event where they celebrated the dedication and sacrifice of these men and women in Bulloch County. Let's continue to honor and support our first responders, who go above and beyond to ensure our safety and well-being. Together, we can show our appreciation for these everyday heroes who selflessly protect and serve our community.

What a great honor and privilege to serve those who put their lives on the line to keep us safe! A first responder’s role is to respond and provide assistance to emergency situations, and they are employed as firefighters, police officers, paramedics, EMTs, or other specialty positions. They perform different tasks, but they all work to help those in need.

Our first responders of the Bulloch County Sheriff's Department, Statesboro Police Department, Statesboro Fire Department, Bulloch County Fire Department, and Bulloch EMS were invited to join the residents of The Cottages at Bethany for a ‘Come & Go Breakfast’ on Friday, May 24, 2024. 

"We are so excited and thankful to be able to host our 2nd Annual First Responders Breakfast at The Cottages at Bethany with the help of our generous community donors and amazing Cottage resident volunteers,” said Haley McNure, Coordinator for The Cottages at Bethany.

"We appreciate the community and all that Bethany does to support us. It's an honor, not just me but all of our deputies, feel honored to serve," shared Sheriff Noel Brown in conversation.

Chick-fil-A and Uncle Shug's donated more than 175 chicken biscuits, while Cool Beanz and Three Tree Coffee Roasters donated 6 gallons of coffee. The Cottage residents passed out the biscuits and coffee as first responders stopped-in or drove through. Somewhere between 75 and 100 attended and visited with the Cottage residents. Some first responders parked and hung out, which the residents loved.

“Volunteering, passing out the breakfast, and giving back to the people who do so much for us at Bethany and the community is our privilege,” added McNure.

Chief Mike Broadhead added, “Bethany is doing great work in our community and we genuinely appreciate them including us for breakfast today.”

McNure said the breakfast was all part of Bethany's commitment of service to our community.

“Here at Bethany, we are committed to living out one of the several ‘belief’ statements of Bethany: ‘We are called to serve.’ Today, we are honored to serve our First Responders who go above and beyond to keep our community healthy and safe,” concluded McNure.
