ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Albany Police Americorps Cadets delivered Thanksgiving Dinners to elderly folks in need.

Ten cadets and Albany Police volunteers packed the meals

Wednesday morning. They bought the food with money from their Americorps Grant, cooked and packaged it, and then delivered it to in the William Binns community.

Cadet Jerome Smiley, Jr. said "A lot of older individuals are sometimes forgotten about by their relatives during the Holidays. So through this Americorps grant we feel like we reach the older community and feed them. So they feel like somebody cares about them during the Holidays."

The packages included ham, turkey, dressing and gravy, greens, vegetables, bread and desert. The cadets also delivered a lot of Holiday cheer.
