Blocker’s treats airport workers
Vicky Bartholomew, owner of Blocker’s Coffeehouse, decided to reward Transportation Security Administration 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 309 Front St., Catasauqua.
