DIXON – A retired Oregon teacher recently donated 300 meals from Salamandra's to feed health care professionals at KSB Hospital.

Jeen Morrs made a $2,000 donation to provide meals from Salamandra Mexican restaurant in Dixon to KSB employees Thursday.

Kayla Ayala, daughter of Salamandra owner Juana Ayala, said Morrs is a longtime customer and family friend who wanted to do something special, and they were happy to make it happen.

"We loved the idea and thought it was exactly what our community of health care providers needed during this time," she said.

The kind gesture of appreciation brought a smile to everyone's faces, KSB officials said.

Several acts of kindness are circulating throughout the Sauk Valley, including a GoFundMe started by the Sauk Valley Taking Care of Care Takers group that has raised north of $7,000 to provide meals to health care workers throughout the area.

"The support for our heroes on the front lines continues to strengthen, and it is very appreciated by those putting their health in danger to serve others," the Lee County Unified Executive Leadership Team said of the donations.
