Clover Island Inn is offering up free breakfast for the currently furloughed Coast Guard that's working for free during the Government Shutdown.

Mark Blotz, the General Manager of Clover Island took to his Facebook page to explain what was going on. Clover Island is offering up a free breakfast or lunch until the shutdown is over.

Blotz in the letter says " Don't think of this as handout but think of this as a neighbor helping another neighbor".

The staff at Clover Island has been instructed to offer a free meal to any Coast Guard on Clover Island.

I think it's a wonderful gesture, you can read more details at Clover Island's Facebook page here
