Both New York Sub Hub and Frios Gourmet Pops have collected donations from Denton residents to provide essential employees with food to enjoy during their long days.

Lauren Penn, the owner of Frios Gourmet Pops, said customers have purchased a “Donate a Dozen” package, which goes to businesses and medical teams as a way to thank them.

“We’ve been able to deliver ice cream and vegan popsicles to a number of hospitals in the area that were purchased by donors,” Penn said.

Penn said they’ve done these “pop drops” for the emergency room team at Medical City Denton, MD Family Clinic, 18 and Under MD in Flower Mound and for the Denton Police Department.

Businesses they’ve provided pops for include Aldi and Walmart on University Drive and Kroger on Loop 288.

“[We] have several friends who are nurses and essential workers, and we know how hard they’re working,” Penn said. “We thought it was a really great way to give back to those essential workers.”
