Laurel business hosts ‘back the blue’ event

LAUREL, Miss. (WDAM) - ServiceMaster Restoration in Laurel held a ‘back the blue’ lunch to show their appreciation for local law enforcement. Owners Cindy and Darrin Renz say they wanted to do something to let officers know they support them.

“They put their life on the line every day for us, and Darrin and I wanted to do a little for them to show our support because it is important," Cindy said.

She says it’s important to her to thank those that are looking out for her community.

"They’re here for us all the time and like I said, they put their life on the line for us, and this is just a little bit of something we wanted to do for them,” Cindy said.

The businesses set up a catered lunch with refreshments in the warehouse on Sandy Lane. Cindy says at ServiceMaster, employees often wear T-shirts on certain days each month to support service members, including law enforcement and military.

“To all of them, thank you for your service," she said. "Every day that you guys go out there and protect our country and our cities and our towns, it’s amazing. and I greatly appreciate it. We appreciate it.”

They invited all law enforcement in Laurel and Jones County to come out and enjoy a meal as a thank you for their service.
