Police Officers Donate Hundreds Of Food Boxes And Toys To Needy Families In Indiana

Our police officers are being scrutinized at all quarters but they never fail to go above and beyond in looking after the community.

The South Bend Police Department is being praised after it spread holiday cheer for hundreds of families in need in Indiana. At an annual event held before Christmas, the officers were seen handing out boxes of food and toys to locals at the Salvation Army Kroc Center.


The department’s media liaison, Christine Karsten, said that an estimated 1,600 people stopped by. “The South Bend Police Department jumped at the chance to help connect with our community by spending the last two days handing out these boxes,” she said.

“Our department really works hard to engage and serve our community all year long, especially during the holidays,” Karsten added. “It is a great way for them to interact with families, adults, kids, outside of routine police work and they really enjoy it.”

It doesn’t end there because the officers are going all out to spread some much-needed holiday cheer. In Orlando, Florida, officers wore red Santa hats on Saturday morning to deliver gifts to more than 200 children.
