There are several programs like that around here. It's pretty cool to know that these programs are around. Police officers are just as human as the rest of us. I'm sure this does them wonders as it does for the community.
Seen on Yahoo this evening where a cop went to I think Dollar General, for a reported shoplifting ,. The woman was shoplifting because her and her kids hadn't eaten for 3 or 4 days. The officer ended up buying a dozen of eggs , for the person if she promised not to steal again. After word got out it took most of the day to deliver all the donations sent to the police. They also helped her find food banks and other agencies to help her in the future.
