TEXARKANA, Texas (KSLA) - Firefighters with the Texarkana, Texas, Fire Department received a donation from Academy Sports and Outdoors on Wednesday, Nov. 16.

The business donated $1,000 worth of fitness equipment to the department. Academy officials said they wanted to thank the first responders who will spend Thanksgiving Day on duty instead of with their families.

“We wanted to say thank you for them working this holiday season. We know they serve the community we are in and we just wanted to say thank you,” said Ashley Razo with Academy.

Fire Chief Chris Black said the donation should help keep firefighters in good physical condition. “The donation of this treadmill really helps our guys keep their fitness in shape so we can do our job even better for our community.”
