Radio station teams up with Back the Blue to feed Lee Co. Sheriff officials

LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

WSRA Radio Station and Back the Blue supporters fed lunch to the Lee County Sheriff's Office deputies and staff Friday.

Last month, the group and volunteers fed lunch to Albany Police. This time they wanted to show their support to Lee Co. law enforcement.  

The supporters say people don't say thank you in person enough to officers, so this is their way of letting them know they are appreciated.

"By doing a back the blue function like this, and feeding them, and actually bringing the food to them, they fully realize how much we really do appreciate what they do for us," said Dennis Gilbert.

WSRA station officials say they hope to host more lunches for South Georgia law enforcement agencies in the future, to thank the officers who keep the community safe.
