While the nation is still in the grips of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, stories of hope, kindness, and charity continue to be revealed, with many companies and organizations teaming up through various acts of charity to help workers on the front lines. FC Dallas and Toyota originally kicked off their partnership back on March 19th, but the duo managed to once again pull off a surprise for essential workers with the help of Rosa’s Café a local eatery.
Rosa’s worked together with both FC Dallas and Toyota and distributed gift cards for employees, linemen and technicians who work at CoServ. The gift cards are good for Rosa’s Taco Tuesday plate specials, and come in advance of National Linemen Appreciation Day which takes place every year on April 18th. The electric cooperatives linemen and technicians have been working night and day to ensure that consumers have power, especially at hospitals where electricity is paramount to running many of the life-saving ventilators and other equipment used to help COVID-19 patients.
“I would like to thank FC Dallas for recognizing CoServ’s linemen and our gas technicians for National Lineman Appreciation Day,” Shea Hassell, CoServ Director of Operations. “We are all grateful for the folks in the healthcare and first responder job roles, especially with the current situation, and it’s a great thing for our guys to be recognized with them. Our linemen and gas techs are hard at work and committed to keeping the lights and heat on and allowing us all to enjoy a higher quality of life.”
