Donors can drop off non-perishable food items at the police station at 101 M St. SW or the substation at 500 E St. SE. The food is collected at the stations and distributed to families in need on Thanksgiving, according to an email from First District Community Outreach Coordinator Carolyn L. Smith.

The police are specifically seeking the following non-perishable items, according to Smith:

  • Canned vegetables (yams, carrots, green beans, corn)
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Apple sauce
  • Canned fruits
  • Soups (box and can)
  • Dry goods (stuffing, rice, macaroni & cheese, mashed potatoes)
