INDIANAPOLIS–Lots of people got to enjoy the day off of work for Labor Day on Monday. That wasn’t the case for many nurses, doctors, firefighters, and other first responders.
That’s why Olive Garden shows their support every Labor Day by offering meals to those people.
Renee Twiley is the General Manager of the Olive Garden in Carmel. On Labor Day, her staff made sure the nurses, doctors, firefighters, and other medical personnel at St. Vincent Hospital on 86th Street got to enjoy pasta, breadsticks, salad, meatballs, and many other Italian dishes.
“This is our way of honoring the first responders, the people who do great things, and it’s our way of saying thank you,” Twiley said.
“We really appreciate it, because a holiday to us is just another day and people still get sick,” said Jen Harris, a nurse at St. Vincent. “For them to think of us, is really appreciated.”
Olive Garden has served over 12,000 meals since 2002 through this nationwide Labor Day program.
