CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - After an anonymous family donated a gift card to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, the officers gave back to the community by using the gift card to provide a family with a Thanksgiving meal.
One of the officers was aware of a single mom with four children. The officers decided to bring the family a full holiday meal complete with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, green beans and an apple pie for dessert.
