In honor of Fort Worth’s First Responder Day on Friday, Feb. 11, the Blue Family Fund, Inc., a nonprofit that provides financial aid to families of fallen or injured first responders, will be providing a free lunch for all first responders in Stephens and Shackleford counties.

In Breckenridge, the lunch will be served to all first responders — on-duty or off-duty — at the Stephens County Sheriff’s Office.

The Fort Worth First Responders Day (also known as FW 2.11) was created by a group of citizens as a way to give back to the first responders who were instrumental in providing help on Feb. 11, 2021, when six people were killed and many more injured in a 130+ car pile-up on Interstate 35 in Fort Worth.  Click here for more information on FW 2.11.

Blue Family Fund was founded in 2017 by Stacey and Michael Magovern, who own Lonestar Lake Spot just west of Breckenridge.

In addition to participating in FW 2.11, the Magoverns also are currently collecting used items, such as washed and clean men, women, children and infant clothing; shoes; purses; belts; hats; decor; electronics; laptops; computers; and cell phones. (No TVs or computer monitors,) The items will be recycled, and the proceeds will benefit the Blue Family Fund. There is a trailer at Lonestar Lake Spot, 7195 U.S. Highway 180 West, for the items, and it will be available until it’s full.
