The Dallas Police Department’s Turkey Giveaway at Paul Quinn College was a huge success! It exemplified the partnership between the community and law enforcement. On Saturday, November 14, 2020, community members from local schools, businesses, and non-profits groups came together with DPD employees for one common cause, to provide over 11,000 pounds of groceries for over 375 families.
Many who participated expressed how thankful they were to be able to give back to the community. Recognizing the importance of building trust in the community, law enforcement personnel were eager to get involved. The event went so well that there are plans to make this an annual occasion. Thank you, to everyone who helped make it successful!
