Gilchrist BBQ helps families of deputies killed in Trenton shooting
At the Trenton Community Center, a group from Gilchrist County are feeding others to help two families in need.
“It makes me feel good,” says volunteer Alexis Spoehr.
It’s been nearly three months after Sgt. Noel Ramirez and Deputy Taylor Lindsey were killed at the Ace China restaurant in Trenton, and the community has not forgotten their service and sacrifice.
“I can tell you, everyday is a struggle,” says Sheriff Bobby Schultz, from the Gilchrist Sheriffs Office.
So, the community came together to fundraise money for the two families.
Most of this food was donated, from the brisket, ribs, mac n’ cheese—to the sweet tea.
“We wanted to show support for the community,” says resident Stephen Lambert.
Officers from neighboring counties came by, and say it’s the support from the community that helps the most.
“Truly it’s the thought that counts,” says Sheriff Schultz. “Whether they raised $1 or $500, it’s all worth it.”
Making this southern food not only fill their stomachs, but also, their hearts.
