The Brotherhood of Temple Shalom of Central Florida made a special delivery to first responders last week.

The group was represented by President Marty Simon, of the Village of Pine Ridge, and Treasurer Marty Riefs, of the Village of Collier. They spent a good part of Tuesday delivering the 30 dozen donuts, with each box containing a personal thank you or appreciation letter.

Lt. Robert Siemer received the donuts at the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office on County Road 466. Villages Public Safety Deputy Fire Chief James Goodworth accepted the gift at the department’s headquarters building on Morse Boulevard.

The donuts were distributed by the firefighters to nine fire stations, UF Health The Villages Hospital and UF Health Leesburg Hospital.
