Difference Makers give thanks to First Responders

A close to 150 year old organization says thank you to first responders during the most challenging of times, they're this weeks KRLD Difference Makers.

Fort Worth resident Alex Nason is president of one of the oldest lodges in the United States, Isadore Garcick B'Nai B'Rithe Lodge, whose mission is dedicated to improve the quality of life for people around the globe and making the world a safer and more tolerant place.

And when the world shut down due to COVID-19,  the members of the Lodge stepped into action, honoring first responders by providing hot meals and snacks for station 26 in Fort Worth. Former Fort Worth Mayor Betsey Price was there to honor the first responders alongside the members.

And they didn't stop there. From firefighters to police officers to paramedics at MedStar, the members of the Lodge wanted to honor all of the first responders who risked their lives to take care of others during such a tumultuous time around the world.

"They were so happy," Nason said about the police officers and paramedics receiving hot meals and snacks. "It was beautiful to see."

Nason and the board members and members of the Lodge felt compelled to give even more. This time they wanted to say thank you to the nurses and doctors at the ICU at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital. Their good will homemade meals were happily received.

Not wanting to leave anyone out, the Lodge also decided to give thanks to the often-forgotten 911 dispatchers with more homemade meals and snacks.

Mission: Accomplished.

We're proud to call Alex Nason and the Isadore Garcick B'nai Brithe Lodge this week's KRLD Difference Makers.
