LONGVIEW, Texas (KLTV) - Alpine Church of Christ in Longview has donated 900 meals to feed the staff at CHRISTUS Good Shepherd Medical Center.

The meals were provided for the day and night shift staff as a show of support for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic. Country Tavern Barbecue delivered the first meals on Thursday morning.

Sheri Ruschmeyer, administrative director of emergency services at CHRISTUS Good Shepherd, said the gesture means a lot.

“The outpouring of love and support from our community has been just overwhelming, and I can’t say thank you enough to Alpine Church of Christ and all of the other community members who have donated,” Ruschmeyer said. “Sometimes we get so wrapped up in taking care of the patients we can’t take care of ourselves. We don’t have time. So having the food brought to us has been just such a blessing to us and it’s really helped us continue to do the work that we need to do everyday to keep ourselves and our community safe.”
