The efforts aided both small business and heroes on the front lines.

Seventy plates of tamales meals with rice, beans and salad, two tamales per plate, for a grand total of 140 tamales which were delivered today.

"They are doing so much, they are sacrificing their health and their time. They are working so hard and working 24/7, sometimes when they get a moment they fall asleep at their desk or chair. I can't imagine what they are going through and I'm truly thankful," said Pachulia.
