Representatives of the convenience store chain will deliver 5,000 pizzas and 15,000 doughnuts to police, sheriff and fire departments, emergency rooms, DMVs and post offices nationwide today.
"Public servants are often the unsung heroes of our communities and we're delighted to take time today to extend our thanks for all they do," said Greg Franks, 7-Eleven senior vice president of operations. "We hope this token of gratitude demonstrates our true appreciation for the tireless hours our local first responders, postal workers and all other public service employees put in day-in and day-out."
