Thanks to partnerships with the Minnesota Vikings and UnitedHealth Group, the Bloomington Police Department received a donation of 50 Thanksgiving meals. Officers distributed these meals to local families in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. BPD officers visited local apartment complexes, military families and Creekside Community Center members. They dropped off turkey, pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes, green beans, stuffing, crescent rolls and kind words.
“It was great to see some happy faces and spread some cheer during this tough time,” Sergeant Erik Norling said. “Thank you to our partners who made this happen.”
