RSVP thinks it's the least they could do.
"To pay honor to not only those who have lost their lives on the 9/11 attacks11 years ago," Amanda Buros, Assistant Director RSVP said. "But also to respect and honor those individuals who help keep our community safe on an ongoing basis."
Making one family styled meal possible for the men and women who risk their lives daily.
"We feel kind of overwhelmed by generosity of this group because don't feel like we do anything special we just do out jobs every day," Captain Dan Skiles, La Crosse Fire Department said.
Between the salad, breadsticks and steaming lasagna, the firefighters of La Crosse Station One, think about what this day is really about.
"We always remember that on this date we lost 343 brother firefighters in such a tragic incident," Skiles said.
While the firefighters are thinking about brothers and sisters we lost 11 years ago the La Crosse community is thinking about them, our local heroes.
"It's a great way for us to be able to respect them and at least for once a year tell them thank you for the service they offer," Buros said.
