QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Educators work hard for their communities, that's why Salem Church in Quincy decided to honor those educators with its 2nd annual educators' blessing on Tuesday.

The event was for teachers, secretaries, bus drivers and anyone else that helps kids get an education. Those with the church say no donations were requested, and that the blessing was solely for local educators.

"We had a goodie bag for all educators and then a meal afterwards, and it's just to bless the teachers," said Katie Edwards, a member of Salem Church who is also an educator. "We did not expect anything in return for this."

The goodie bags were filled with notebooks, folders, pencils and other items every educator uses in the classroom.
