School system police provide Thanksgiving meals

November 22, 2006

Albany-  Dougherty County School Police Officers were in on their day off to make sure 18 school families had plenty to eat this Thanksgiving. 

With donations from officers and several local grocery stores, the School Police put together 18 baskets with turkeys, green beans, cranberries, stuffing, and more. Officers chose 18 student's families who may not have had a Thanksgiving and hope to help more in the future. 

"In the future we look to increase five to ten baskets a year to add onto the 18 baskets so we look to go pretty high with out workers and to reach out to a lot of different families," said Officer Terron Hayes, Dougherty Co. School Police Dept. 

School Police Officers distributed the baskets Wednesday morning to families along with warm clothing items.
