LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police officers are armed with Thanksgiving dinners to deliver to hundreds of people across the city.

Dozens of officers also helped prepare and serve a meal at four different locations in Louisville.

Some of those meals are for senior citizens who no longer have the ability to cook for themselves.

Officers say it's a great way to be a good role model for future generations.

"Well in the spirit of Thanksgiving, this is the best way for us to help give back to the community. I brought my two sons out today. I have a 16-year-old that goes to Male High School and I have a 12-year-old that goes to JCTMS. I wanted to show them the true meaning of Thanksgiving," said LMPD Sgt. Clayton Elliot.

This is the 15th year LMPD has partnered with Greater St. Mark Baptist Church for the Thanksgiving Outreach Initiative.
