ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Students at Darton State College are giving back this holiday season. 

On Monday students in the criminal justice program provided lunch for members of the Albany Police Department.

They set up a backyard barbecue in the parking garage and grilled hot dogs for the officers.

They also had chips, drinks and homemade desserts.

"We decided as a club to come out here and support our local law enforcement and just reach out to them so they feel welcome," Darton State College student Zach Kennedy said.

"You know it's Thanksgiving. What else should we be doing other than showing our thanks for those that take care of us each and everyday," Dr. Sarah Kuck, associate professor of political science, said. 

Kuck said that some of the police officers are taking classes at Darton, so she said it's nice to  show her appreciation for them outside the classroom.
