 She had no power at her home but said, “ I am glad that I could help out.” Mrs. Bridge is from Cottageville and has been in the food industry for 20 years. She said, “ I had to have tree’s cut to get to the restaurant, but I am very grateful that the county allowed my mother, Ms. Shuman, and myself to help out. I do not know how to cut trees, so this is the only way we knew how to help out.”
