obligations and we're just trying to do something for them to help them move on

Simmons drove to Winston County last week and donated 2,500 hot
meals to families and volunteers courtesy of his restaurant, The Senator's
Place in Cleveland.
He says that community members and supporters of FEED have made the
cash assistance possible.

they need cash money now to buy gas and for other little things," Simmons said.
"We want to extend our appreciation to those who have donated now or who may
donate in the future."
