GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Labor Day is typically time off to be spent enjoying the last few weeks of summer, but for emergency workers, it's another day helping others.
Olive Garden delivered lunch to urgent care clinics in Grand Junction to thank them for their service to the public, especially on holidays.
"This year we chose to do the local urgent care centers because they have people opened for anyone who's sick or has an accident to come in," said Roberta Burton, assistant manager for the Grand Junction Olive Garden.
Urgent care employees enjoyed pasta, salad, bread sticks and tiramisu as part of a 13-year tradition for Olive Garden restaurants across the U.S.
"They serve us each and every day in our community to keep us safe and Olive Garden likes to show we have a commitment to the local community," Burton said.
Olive Garden has also delivered food to police and fire departments on previous Labor Days. The restaurant chooses a different service organization to feed each year.
