The Waukee Police Department provided 27 Waukee area families (up from 23 last year) with Thanksgiving food baskets purchased from the Waukee Fareway. They delivered the baskets to the recipients on Saturday, Nov. 18. The baskets were filled with the makings of turkey or ham dinners just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.
The PD would like to thank the various Waukee residents and City employees who donated to the cause as well as Gilcrest/Jewett, Brick Gentry, P.C., Stivers Ford Lincoln, Waukee Crime Stoppers, The Quinn Family and Iowa Cremation and Companions For Life. These area businesses and residents provided funds for this project and the annual Shop With a Cop program. This was the third year the department provided this service to the community.
