Kingsport Church, local businesses provide free lunch for law enforcement officials


KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL)- Saturday afternoon Sullivan County Sheriff’s deputies and Kingsport police officers were treated to lunch thanks to a local church.

Members of Christian Life Center in Kingsport said they planned the luncheon for months.

Outreach Director, Jeremy Branham, said the lunch was simply a way to say thank you, and give back to those who serve the community.

“The community just stepped in and it was really cool how they stepped in and became a part of this. We just really hope they understand how much we really appreciate them, and that’s what it means, to show our appreciation and thanks,” Branham said.

Branham said several local businesses and restaurants pitched in to help provide the meals and drinks.

He added that they hope to hold a similar event next year, and include even more area law enforcement agencies.Copyright 2016 WJHL. All rights reserved
