Blocker’s treats airport workers
Vicky Bartholomew, owner of Blocker’s Coffeehouse, decided to reward Transportation Security Administration (TSA) workers at Lehigh Valley International Airport Jan. 25.
Many government employees had been working without a paycheck during the 30-plus-day government shutdown.
“We decided to run coffee and pastries up to them around 8 in the morning,” Bartholomew said. “That’s when the shifts change.”
TSA agents were thrilled.
Bartholomew said it was a goodwill gesture.
“Maybe some of them will taste some good coffee and stop by our place,” she said.
Blocker’s Coffeehouse is located at 311 Front St., Catasauqua.
