Milwaukee firefighters deliver meals to Aurora St. Luke's Hospital workers

NOW: Milwaukee firefighters deliver meals to Aurora St. Luke’s Hospital workers


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee firefighters stopped by Aurora St. Luke's Hospital in Milwaukee Thursday to deliver some free meals to the workers.

It was a team project, involving Wahlburgers restaurant and the Milwaukee Brewers, and some of the workers came out in their masks to greet the firefighters with signs to show their gratitude.

"When we see a show of support like this -- receive a hot meal, have members of our community come out and support us, it's so energizing, it's humbling, but it's energizing at the same time," said Dori Tooke, VP of Operations at Aurora St. Luke's.

One thousand meals will be donated Thursday and Friday.

The Headline should have read: "Milwaukee is paying firefighters to deliver food to hospital workers who are HIGHLY PAID."

Are the Milwaukee Brewers buying the meals from Wahlburgers in this PUBLICITY STUNT?

The Milwaukee Brewers should be supporting Milwaukee Black Owned Restaurants, and donating meals to people who actually need them, on the north side of Milwaukee.

Rather than using/paying Milwaukee firefighters to make deliveries, churches should be partnered with to get meals to people/children who are hungry, and don't have a FAT PAYCHECK to buy enough food.
