SALISBURY — Each year, Yadkin House residents treat local emergency personnel to a luncheon as a way to say thank you. Organizers are asking the community to donate funds to provide for the event.

The Yadkin House is an independent housing complex for low-income older people and adults with disabilities.

The event, called the Honorary Luncheon for Rowan County Emergency Personnel to include fire, police, the sheriff’s office, and EMS, is scheduled for Sept. 22. This is the 14th year for the event.

Residents buy and prepare sides and desserts, but need help providing meats, organizers said.

Service Coordinator Nikki Miller said if they cannot get meat already cooked, the residents will buy and cook the meat.

Any monetary donations can be mailed to Yadkin House, attention main office, 201 N. Lee St., Salisbury NC 28144.

Any restaurant that would like to donate food can contact Miller at 704-636-6486. Staff will pick up the donated food and promote restaurants and businesses who donate.
