Olive Garden donates Labor Day lunch to Kennewick Police
KENNEWICK, Wash. - If you had today off you can thank the labor unions of last century. One local restaurant opted instead to thank members of the Kennewick Police Department who still had to go in to work.
Over 800 Olive Garden restaurants from all over the country made their special deliveries for the 16th year in a row.
Officer Tim Harris of the Kennewick Police said he had already worked for six hours before lunch, with another six hours until he was off, so he's grateful for the fuel.
"We appreciate the generosity of the community. It just shows us the support that they have for us and it's always great to come and have a free meal and see that support that our community is willing to give to us."
This is second year our local Olive Garden participated in the Labor Day deliveries.
Last year they delivered to the Richland Police Department, this year they chose Kennewick, and next year they said they hope to feed the crew in Pasco.
