Cops help others for Christmas

October 27, 2005

Thomasville, Georgia-- Authorities in Thomas County are joining forces to make Christmas a little more merry for needy people.

Until 7:00 Thursday night, the Thomas County Sheriff's Office and the Thomasville Police Department sold dinners. For $5, people got a plate of chicken and rice, green beans, bread, and poundcake. All of the money goes to the Salvation Army, Red Cross, and DFACS.

Officers say it feels great to help people. "Especially the ones that are in need. It makes us feel better to know that we can work together and help people. And we only touched the tip of the iceberg. There are many people here inThomas County and all the surrounding areas that need help," says Thomasville Police detective, Wade Glover.

Last year, the project raised more than $5,000 for the needy.
