Southern IL volunteers give out free sandwiches to flood workers

JACKSON COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

A small group of people stood along route 151 in Jackson County, near Cora, Illinois, holding signs that read 'free sandwiches' for road crews as they worked on flood preparations.

It was an idea that was put into action just yesterday.

For the past two days sandwiches and cookies have been given to workers in the area. 

Stacy Schott thought of the idea and says it's all about paying it forward.

"They're doing countless hours out here," Schott said. "Some haven't ate, some haven't done nothing for days. So we're just doing this to pay it forward to them."

The team made about 200 sandwiches to give out to the road crews.
