SF police, fire chiefs hand-deliver meal to widow of fireman

On Tuesday, March 16, San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr and San Francisco Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White delivered a meal to Barbra Dougherty, a 92-year-old San Francisco native and widow of a fireman.

Both chiefs arrived at Dougherty’s home Tuesday afternoon to hand-deliver her a meal with support from Meals on Wheels as part of a month-long #MarchForMeals campaign, a month dedicated to drawing attention to the plight of homebound seniors.

Dougherty showed the chiefs family photos of her late husband as well as her father who was a nighttime beat police officer in San Francisco. She has lived in her home in the Sunset, built by her father, since she was 10 years old and her family name is a staple within San Francisco’s police and fire departments.
