Free turkeys for cops!

November 9, 2015

More than 100 police officers in Charlottesville won't need to buy a turkey for their families on Thanksgiving this year.

Private donors have bought and paid for 115 turkeys for sworn officers. Reid’s Super Save Market exchanges a single 18 to 20 pound turkey for each officer's voucher.

The Charlottesville Police Foundation organized the Thanksgiving gift.

"It’s really good for them to know that the community is grateful for them and their work and so this is just one really tangible way for them to feel that this year, especially in the month of giving thanks," said Mindy Goodall, of the Charlottesville Police Foundation.

Officers can stop by and pick up their turkeys from November 9 through November 30.

"I really enjoyed hearing about everything the police do, and feel like both on a personal level and on a professional level it will help so much to understand their perspective. We are so lucky to have them. We come from all over the country over in this newsroom, and we know how good we have it with this police force. Thank you such much for treating us to an inside look at what they do!"
