One local business wanted to say thank you to front line health care workers.

Today, the Erie Medical Marijuana Clinic sent a special lunch to the UPMC Hamot emergency room. This was to show their appreciation for their selfless efforts to keep the company safe. The clinic also wanted to support a local business during this economic hardship.

Lunch consisted of: pizza, subs and wings from Sticks and Bricks Wood Fired Pizza.

“I think what it means, is that the community actually supports the emergency department here. That is a wonderful thing, because no one wants to come to the emergency room. You come here because there is an issue or there is a concern. But, now we are seeing he community support us.” said Fred Mirarchi.

He says that other businesses have sent them food as well to show their support.
