Cops give food for St. Clare's to distribute

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - For more than ten years the Dougherty County Police have donated food to feed families in need a Happy Thanksgiving Meal through the St. Clare's Neighbors  In Need.

Tuesday the Dougherty County Police officers continued that tradition, bringing the largest amount of food they ever have to the Catholic Social Service program.

The officers filled their command truck with chickens, rice, vegetables and deserts enough to feed dozens of families a healthy Thanksgiving meal, saying they do it for their community.

Dougherty County Police Sgt. Tamiko Whitlock said "We want everybody to get a warm meal.  And the sisters here have been doing this for years.  And they make sure this community eats. So we wanted to help them."

The Dougherty County Police raised the money, and they thanked Mike's Country Store for their large donation.  The sisters of the Catholic Social Service St. Clare's Neighbors in Need say this food will help them feed families this Thanksgiving, and re-stock their shelves for the coming weeks.
