Christmas Day was special once again this year for emergency responders in Richland County thanks to the generosity of Two Cousins' Pizza Company.

The pizza chain hosted its third annual "Feeding the Forces" in partnership with the Richland County Chaplain Corps. Chaplain Derrick Martin started the event three years ago to provide a meal for law enforcement .

 The idea was posted on Facebook and took off with the support of the community. Brad Konves and his brother Bill, of Two Cousins' Pizza, are happy that they can give back to the community where they were born and raised.

"We're blessed to be a part of this community, to see the community come forward make such great donations and work behind the scenes," Konves said.

 "It's also a great opportunity to serve for all the people that volunteer to deliver the pizzas. I proud to be a part of it," Konves said.

This year Two Cousins' Pizza will feed more than 200 law enforcement personnel. More than $1,200 was raised surpassing the goal of $700 needed to provide more than 100 pizzas.

The program serves the Ohio Air National Guard Security Military Police, Ohio State Highway Patrol, Richland County Sheriff's Office Road Patrol and Corrections, Mansfield Police Department, Ontario Police Department, Plymouth Police Department, Shelby Police Department, Bellville Police Department, Butler Police Department, Ohio Air National Guard ARF Unit, Mansfield Fire Department stations, Springfield Fire Department stations, Shelby Fire Department, Madison Township Fire Department, Mifflin Township Fire Department, Richland County EMA 911 Dispatchers and Mansfield City 911.
