SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Americans are pausing to reflect upon the heroism of so many first responders who lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks, 12 years ago.
Volunteers in Sioux Falls are paying their own tribute to emergency workers with a special delivery.
Members of South Dakota AARP as well as Sioux Falls Area Retired Teachers Association have been busy in their kitchens preparing baked goods. They're delivering the treats to every fire station in the city as well as to the Sioux Falls Public Safety Building.
It's their way of commemorating the 9/11 anniversary as well as saying thanks for the lifesaving work first responders perform every day
"We started doing this in the tenth anniversary and we didn't want to quit. We wanted to keep doing it so it just is a feeling of security knowing that we are protected by our police officers and firefighters," Gretchen Tweet with Sioux Falls Area Retired Teachers said.
The volunteers have also been visiting with firefighters to share their memories of 9/11.
