Attorney Chris Slusser and the Slusser Law Firm team provided first responders with free lunches from local restaurants in an act of goodwill amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
On May 1, 2020, Slusser Law Firm paid for the lunches of local firefighters, police officers, and medical first responders who ate at five participating local restaurants in the Hazleton and Hazle Township, PA area. First responders could present their credentials at Frankie’s Pizzeria, D’Amato’s Pizza, Deli in the Dairy, Vincenzo’s Pizza, and Alfredo’s Brick Oven Pizza to receive a free meal, courtesy of the Slusser Law Firm team.
Attorney Slusser has been directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. His mother, Annetta Slusser, passed away at 84 years old due to the effects of the virus. She had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, among other health concerns, making her vulnerable to the contraction of COVID-19.
Attorney Slusser’s personal tragedy and the effects of the pandemic he saw throughout the community inspired him to create the free lunch initiative. “Our family has been directly touched by this virus and I just wanted to do something for the first responders and some of the family businesses in the area,” he reported to the Standard-Speaker.
He went on to describe the program as a “win-win,” and said, “Family restaurants get some much-needed business and first responders get a much-needed meal. I see a great need to both recognize and thank area first responders for the sacrifices they are making every day to help others, as well as support local restaurants who have been impacted by the statewide orders to close businesses or limit operations to take-out only.”
