Celebrating Spread Goodness Day

By  | 

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - All across the U.P., we've seen dozens of businesses participate in Spread Goodness day with small or big acts of random goodness. One of them included Brookridge Heights Assisted Living and Memory Support, who provided a pancake breakfast for emergency service crews this morning.

From firefighters to police officers, crews came in for their free pancakes, fruit, and refreshments from 6-10 A.M.

Executive director at Brookridge, Neal Crothers, says when the center first heard about the inaurgural day, they knew immediately that they wanted to do something to help the first responders.

"They put their lives on the line," Crothers said. "They have very difficult jobs and often don't get thanked for the hard work that they do. They've committed themselves to serving in the community, and this was just a great way for us to reach out and thank them."

Other random acts of goodness are making their way to Brookridge with groups like Range Bank and Northern University students who plan to drop off garden baskets and blankets for the center later in the day.
