More than 100 Tustin families enjoyed Thanksgiving meal thanks to a Tustin PD community outreach program to benefit the needy.
On Wednesday, Nov. 25, officers delivered dozens of dinners to low-income families at the Tustin Family and Youth Center. The turkey dinner program started eight years ago when Tustin PD Sgt. Taylor organized an annual flag football tournament that drew teams from law enforcement agencies across the county. Although the tournament disbanded in 2013, the Tustin PD wanted to make sure they continued to provide Thanksgiving meals.
City employees, the Tustin Police Officers’ Association and the Tustin Police Support Services Association this year helped raise more than $2,600 to buy 123 turkey dinners. HoneyBaked Ham also donated $1,000 for the meals.
