“The President and I will continue to support our dedicated firefighters, police members, EMS personnel and other critical first responders who put their lives at risk each day in order to keep our neighborhoods safe,” she added.

Melania continued, while she noted that “we are grateful for their teamwork, professionalism and courage, and the vital role they play in communities throughout the country.”

During the visit, the first lady also met with firefighters and policemen and women from the nearby DC Metropolitan Police Department Third District to talk to them about the challenges they have faced during the pandemic, per the release.

The release also noted that all of the boxed lunches were prepared by the White House chefs.

It all comes following Melania’s surprise visit to the staff and residents at The Mary Elizabeth House last week, where she brought with her a donation of boxed lunches, Be Best tote bags and several other items.
