Not everyone can have Labor Day off, but one local restaurant chain stepped up Monday to help those who were keeping the public safe on the holiday.

Workers with Olive Garden delivered food to local police and fire departments on Monday, continuing a Labor Day tradition that started more than a decade ago. Workers were dropping off food at the Niles municipal building for officers and staff who had to spend the holiday on the job.

“They do it every year. It’s very kind of them. We do appreciate it. A lot of times the guys are running around, they don’t have a chance for a break, so they can come in here and do a report, grab something to eat. And the dispatchers appreciate it as well,” said Niles Police Capt. Ken Criswell.

This is the 12th year Olive Garden restaurants have donated meals to police and fire departments across the country and those staffing hospital emergency rooms on Labor Day.
