Best friends bring 'Fuel the Fight Movement' to DC region to help those on the frontlines

Three local women who've been best friends for more than a decade wanted to help the men and women working on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic.

Chelsea, Amanda and Carly brought what's called the "Fuel the Fight Movement," which began in Philadelphia and New York City, to the D.C. region.

They're using the money they raise to buy meals from local restaurants and delivering the food to the health care workers and first responders across the state of Maryland.

On Thursday, they sent 60 meals from Dal Grano in McLean, Virginia, to health care workers at George Washington Hospital. They also made six more deliveries today.

Now, the three friends are hoping to get everyone fired up about the "Fuel the Fight DC" movement.
