STAMFORD, Conn. ? Stamford Police officers spent part of their Friday afternoon delivering turkeys to the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County.
“This Thanksgiving, we want to make sure that Stamfordites will still have the opportunity to enjoy a traditional holiday dinner,” Sgt. Joseph Kennedy, president of the Stamford Police Association, said in a release.
The police association donated 50 turkeys from Grade A Shop Rite to the food bank, which is based in the Glenbrook neighborhood of Stamford. The food bank supplies organizations in Greenwich, Darien, Wilton, and New Canaan.
The association represents the some 300 members of the Stamford Police Department and participates in a variety of community programs each year. “Our officers are passionate about helping the community. We are looking forward to giving back and helping those who need it most,” Kennedy said in the release.
