New Jersey Waitress Picks Up Tab for Firefighters

DELRAN, N.J. (AP) -

Two New Jersey firefighters are paying it forward after a waitress picked up their tab.

Tim Young of the Mount Holly Fire Department took Paul Hullings of the Hainesport Fire Department to breakfast at the Route 130 Diner in Delran after Hullings spent 12 hours fighting a massive warehouse fire in North Brunswick on Wednesday.

Turning the bill over, Hullings saw a note from waitress Liz Woodard saying she was paying for breakfast. She thanked them for their courage, strength and bravery.

Young then learned the waitress is trying to raise $80,000 to buy a wheelchair accessible van for her paralyzed father. The pair say they’ll do whatever they can to help.
