Fred's Pharmacy in Cairo has been collecting donations all week long to go toward their local emergency services, but the store manager thought selling hats for one dollar just wasn't enough.

Maryellen Chancey said, "I decided to take it a step further because we need to give back to our local heroes and what they've done for us in this community. They're here to serve and protect us and we need to in return show them that we have not forgotten about them."

Employees donated the baked goods for the fundraiser, and local vendors donated lunches all to be sold to raise money for Cairo's local heroes.
