Richmond Domino's pizza feeds police on one-year anniversary of Officer Ellis' death
It's been one year since the death of Richmond Police Officer Daniel Ellis ,but now one year later employees at a Richmond area Domino's Pizza are making sure all officers are fed.
Beginning with the morning shift, employees at the eastern bypass Domino's Pizza franchise will deliver pizza all day Sunday.
Manager Kelli Bohn says the community of Richmond has done a great job at rallying around the police and the Ellis family but she says now it's her turn to give back.
Bohn says Officer Ellis' death hit her on a personal level as her father was an Illionis State Trooper. She says on a difficult day like the one year anniversary of Officer Ellis' death she just wants to deliver happiness any way she can.
"It's just all about togetherness. We come behind each other, we stand behind each other. You don't feel in Richmond that you're all alone in the community," she said. "You feel like you've got somebody who's got your back; especially the police department."
Bohn says the Domino's franchise will accept and deliver orders from anyone in the community for the Richmond Police Department
