Men and women on the front line at Scruggs Volunteer Fire Department, the rescue squad, and the dive team recently received a gift from local State Farm Insurance Agent Debbie Robbins.

It was a gift that also supported local businesses.

In support of first responders as well as local hair salons, Robbins provided $500 total in individual gift certificates to three local hair salons. Robbins said that the hair salons she chose were greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, with having rent and utilities to pay.
