BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Every year, the Fraternal Order of Police in Bowling Green delivers meals the week before Thanksgiving. Due to COVID-19, the group decided to hand out gift cards instead of meals.

“So these are huge times for us because normally when the community sees the police it is generally a bad time. Either they are a victim of a crime or maybe a suspect of a crime and they’re being investigated. So no matter what if we show up it is a bad day for them. So when we get to come out and do things like this we are not only helping people out but it is also a way to see us in a positive light,” said Robert Perry, local FOP president.

According to the FOP, members delivered gift cards to 70 families in the area.

“I’m thankful for our deputies and our community’s generosity. Today, we partner with the FOP to deliver gift cards within our community to ensure they have a blessed Thanksgiving,” said Warren County Sheriff Brett Hightower on Facebook.
