REP. PADDIE TO PROVIDE MEALS FOR FIRST RESPONDERS AND MEDICAL WORKERS; MAKES MATCHING DONATION TO BLESSINGS OF GRACE FOOD PANTRY
MARSHALL -- Rep. Chris Paddie invites Marion County first responders and healthcare
providers to come by McGarity's Restaurant & Saloon to pick up a meal as a small token of our
community's appreciation for all that they are doing during these difficult times.
The restaurant will be open to the public, as they are every day, but this Friday, May 22nd, the
first 100 healthcare workers and first responders will receive a free meal. The restaurant is
located at 208 W Dallas Street and will be serving these meals from 11a.m. to 8p.m (they are
open until 11p.m. and live music starts at 6:30p.m. until 9:30p.m.). First responders and
healthcare workers are encouraged to bring an ID to show when they order their meal.
In addition to these meals, Rep. Paddie will make a matching donation to the Blessings of Grace
Food Pantry to assist in providing food for those in need during these difficult times. Those who
are in need of assistance can contact Blessings of Grace at 903-665-3268.
"These are difficult times for many in our community. As we continue to ask so many to stay
home to prevent the spread of COVID-19, many folks have lost their livelihood through no fault
of their own. I am making this donation to Blessings of Grace to help them continue to serve our
neighbors," said Rep. Paddie. "I am also pleased to provide a hot meal for law enforcement, fire
fighters, doctors, nurses, and so many more who are working diligently to keep us all safe and
healthy as we make our way through these difficult times. While this is just a small token of our
community's appreciation, it is one way that we can say thank you for all that you do for us day
in and day out."
