Pierce County, Wash. - Following the tragic shooting of Pierce County Sheriff's Deputy Daniel McCartney, the Pierce County community is rallying together in support of their local law enforcement agencies on #LawEnforcementAppreciationDay.
On Tuesday, KIRO 7's Patranya Bhoolsuwan shared a story of kindness as two women with Boss Mama's Food Truck, based in Puyallup, came to Tacoma to donate lunch bags for Pierce County Sheriff's Deputies ahead of the procession for Deputy McCartney.
