NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - It is known as the 102 minutes that changed America. On a clear Tuesday morning in 2001 at 8:45, the September 11 attacks unfolded.
More than 3,000 people were killed in the attacks and least 400 of them were first responders.
So, in a small, but mindful way, McDonald's and the Wrightsboro United Methodist Church want to say 'thank you' to those who put their lives on the line every day.
From 6 a.m. until 9 p.m. the McDonald's at 2541 Castle Hayne Rd. will be giving away a free value meal and dessert to any first responder (EMS, police, sheriff's deputies, etc.) in uniform or with an ID.
