A group of first responders in Ocean County, New Jersey received an unexpected thank you.

Six members of the Toms River Rescue Squad were having breakfast after their shift on Friday.

A restaurant employee informed them another customer paid the group's $77 tab.

The customer wrote a note saying, "Thank you for all you do. Have a great day."

It was signed, a "recovering addict."

The volunteer members say the gesture of kindness will never be forgotten.
