Members of the Manchester Fire & Rescue prepared and delivered a meal to feed guests at the Ronald McDonald House in Chattanooga last Friday evening. Firefighter Amber Reed stayed at the house for 11 weeks when her daughter, Jayden, was born nine years ago. Friday marked the anniversary date when Jayden was released from Erlanger Hospital so the Manchester Fire & Rescue prepared a meal of ham, sweet potatoes, mixed vegetables, rolls, deserts and drinks for the guests of the house as a way to help Amber and Jayden return some of the hospitality they received nine years ago.
