Mary Hostetter, the owner of the Blue Owl Restaurant and Bakery in Kimmswick, along with employees James Brogsdon and Sharon Morris, delivered 50 desserts on March 20 to police departments, fire stations, ambulance houses and hospitals throughout Jefferson and St. Louis counties.
Hostetter said she and the employees made the desserts, while observing social-distancing guidelines, at the Kimmswick restaurant, which closed on March 18 because of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. She said the restaurant will remain closed for the foreseeable future.
Hostetter said she wanted to deliver desserts to first responders and hospital staff members as a thank-you for what they are doing to help combat the pandemic.
“It was one of the most rewarding days of my life,” Hostetter said.
