(WBIR, Knoxville) - Eggs, bacon, sausage, and pancakes were on the menu for dozens of first responders in Knoxville Tuesday morning.

This is the second year the Salvation Army has fed first responders as part of the 60th annual National Salvation Army week.

"National Salvation Army Week is about giving back to those who support us throughout the year, and the first responders in our community are kind of like the unsung heroes. They very rarely get the recognition they deserve, so it's a little token of our appreciation to have them in for a free breakfast," said Rob Link, Director of Community Relations for Salvation Army.

There are several other events going on this week as part of the Salvation Army Week .

On Thursday the Fit for Success Career Fair will take place at the Salvation Army location in Knoxville. Several employers from the Knoxville area including Walmart, Weigel's, Marco's Pizza, GC Services, Cellular Sales, Volunteers of America, Goodwill Industries and more will be there.
