During the current COVID-19 pandemic, community members and local businesses have stepped up to show their appreciation for frontline workers and first responders.
Starting next week, as the start of school looms, Tiny Little Donuts in Franklin is expanding its definition of “first responder” to include schoolhouse heroes, providing free “tiny little” bits of joy every Tuesday.
“In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Tiny Little Donuts is now considering community educators reporting back to work to teach our children as first line responders,” Tiny Little Donuts owner Mark Mogul said.
Mogul said his team always provides free donuts to first responders, including police, fire and EMS personnel, and now school staff, including teachers, administrators, secretaries and maintenance workers will be able to cash in on this sweet deal every Tuesday beginning Aug. 4.
“Simply stop by either Franklin location and present your school ID and receive a free TLD generous dozen box of hot, fresh Tiny Little Donuts on 'Teacher Tuesday,'” Mogul said. “We are both honored and thankful for your selfless service to our community.”
Mogul added families who want to bring a smile to their teacher’s face can visit the Airstreams for “buy one, get one” boxes of Tiny Little Donuts — one for themselves and one for their beloved teacher. Tiny Little Donuts operates out of two Airstream trailers in Franklin, one at 328 Fifth Avenue North and another at 1203 Murfreesboro Road.
Mogul said the team has taken the Tennessee Pledge and is committed to following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention health guidelines for COVID-19.
“Social distancing, requiring face masks and enhanced sanitizing of all surfaces are part of our daily routine,” he said.
