Pender Co. church says ‘thank you’ to community heroes
ROCKY POINT, NC (WWAY) — Some kids at a church in Pender County spent the day with law enforcement and first responders to say thank you to the community’s heroes.
Lighthouse Church and Surge Youth Center invited the Pender County Sheriff’s Office, fire, EMS, and the military in the county to community hero day.
The kids got to see what it is like inside an ambulance and a fire truck. They also got to hang out with some of the service dogs from the Sheriff’s Office.
Surge Director Mike Velie said instead of all the negativity going on around the world today, they wanted to say thank you to the folks who are serving and protecting us.
