God’s Grillers for Eighteen Wheelers deserves praise and appreciation

It’s always nice to see local residents step up and help the community, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

God’s Grillers for Eighteen Wheelers did just that last Saturday in the parking lot of Crossroads Exxon, located at the Intersection of Highway 80 West and Highway 219.

Several volunteers in the organization stood in the parking lot, grilling hamburgers and hot dogs to truck drivers who reside in Selma and Dallas County.

According to God Grillers for Eighteen Wheelers organizer Jeremy Ross, over $2,500 in donations from local businesses, churches and citizens to purchase hamburgers, buns, hot dogs, chips, paper products and promotional material.

Volunteering their services alongside Ross were Steven Smith, Debra Reese, Tawanna Small, Pastor David Perry, John Small Jr. Jake Richmond and Antonio Williams.

Ross said the effort wouldn’t have been successful without local citizens, businesses and churches. He noted that the local residents always helped him with his other charitable donations.

We applaud the countless businesses such as Diamond 1 Construction and Pepsi Cola as well as House of Prayer, Selma Church of God and New Word Ministry, for assisting God’s Grillers for Eighteen Wheelers.

While we do not mention the other businesses that assisted with the donations, you also deserve a pat on the back as well.

Kudos for God’s Grillers for Eighteen Wheelers for helping the community through tough times.
