ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Dougherty County Police give to make a Happy Thanksgiving for families in need.
For the 8th year in a row, DCP officers carried a truck load of groceries to the Neighbors in Need Program at the St. Clare's Community Center on Martin Luther King Drive.
They donated about $800 and bought the food, enough for at least 25 full Thanksgiving dinners with turkey.
Neighbors in Need says they desperate need donations. "I guess what strikes me the most is we have so many people coming for the first time. They have not needed help before, and they need it now," said Sister Veronica Weygand of Neighbors in Need.
"St. Clare's is open year round to anyone that is in need. They won't turn anyone away, and we hope other people will donate food and clothing also to St .Clare's Neighbors in Need," said Dougherty County Police Det. Chad Kirkpatrick.
Neighbors in Need feeds about 30 families a day with grocery donations while St. Clare's Soup Kitchen feeds about 125 a day.
The Dougherty County Police Department again gave a generous annual donation even though workers are making less because of furlough days.
