Salvation Army delivers to-go lunches to MPD in honor of National Police Week
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County is helping out the Milwaukee Police Department by handing out free to-go lunches.
It's in honor of National Police Week and the five-year anniversary of the Salvation Army's chaplaincy program.
The chaplaincy program is a partnership between the Salvation Army and the police department.
The chaplains are called to critical incidents when police determine emotional and spiritual care is needed.
The lunches are a simple way of saying thank you.
"We just want them to know that we see them, we know the hard work they're putting in, we know the sacrifices they make, and we want them to know that we really appreciate them," said Pastor Alexis Twito, chaplain coordinator.
About 1,000 lunches will be dropped off at various police districts through Friday.
