The public was welcome to stop by to sign a poster or write a thank you note for area first responders.

Members of the foundation also offered coloring sheets and stickers for kids.

"Our first responders are there every day for us,” said one attendee. “They put themselves in harm's way. Whether it's fire, corrections or 911 operators, they're there when we need them and this is a day to show them how much they mean to us each and every day."

10% of sales at the shop went to supporting first responders.
