As a thank you for their continued hard work keeping El Pasoans safe, Desert Oak Barbecue are doing their part and helping feed El Paso first responders. Today has been a horrific tragedy for the El Paso region, something that many are having trouble even imagining can even happen in our own community. The El Paso community is doing as much as possible to step up and assist our people in this time.

One of those businesses is Desert Oak Barbecue, who want to give a helping hand by feeding those first responders on scene. They have announced they will be giving away free food to first responders and more who worked all day helping during this tragedy:

"We love El Paso, and today the unimaginable happened. Our hearts are with our city tonight.

We are so thankful for the brave work and service from our first responders, fire and rescue, and emergency medical professionals today. As a show of appreciation to you all, come by and pick up dinner on us. We will feed you until our food runs out."

I'm proud to have met these wonderful business owners and they are outstanding members of our community for what they are doing. Hopefully other business will be helping as well during this extremely difficult time. Over and over, we are showing the world that we are EL PASO STRONG. Desert Oak Barbecue is located at 1320 North Zaragoza Suite 105.
