Thomasville, GA- Law enforcement officials in Thomasville and Thomas County will be trading in their badges for aprons Thursday.
It's all part of the 12th annual "Law Enforcement Goodwill Project," which is hosted by the Thomasville Police Department, Thomas County Sheriff's Office and Thomasville-Thomas County Narcotics Division.
The law enforcement agents will spend the day preparing meat and veggies for families in the area to purchase.
For $7, folks can receive a half chicken, green beans, corn on the cob, bread and pound cake.
All of the money raised from the dinner sales will then go towards buying Christmas gifts for needy children in the community.
Lt. Wade Glover, with the Thomasville Police Department says the event usually raises anywhere from $7,000-$10,000 and allows them to provide for about 100 children during the holidays.
Tickets are still available and can be purchased at the Thomasville Justice Center located at 921 Smith Ave, Thomasville, GA 31792 or you can call the Police Station Headquarters at 229-227-3302.
The meals will be available for pick-up Thursday, November 21 between 5:00 p.m.- 7:00 p.m. at the Justice Center located at 921 Smith Ave, Thomasville, GA 31792.
