Two Camden County officers provide food for the less fortunate on Thanksgiving
Every Friday on the show it is #BlueFriday, where we honor a special police officer that went above and beyond the call of duty to help someone in need.
This week's honorees are two special officers from the Camden County Police Department who gave back to their community on Thanksgiving.
We want to thank officers Ryan Kennedy and Jeremy Feliciano for their kindness to ensure that over 20 people had meals on Thanksgiving. From the Camden County Facebook page:
On Thanksgiving night, officers from the 1st and 3rd Districts working that night gathered at the Camden County Police Department substation in North Camden for a small Thanksgiving dinner and celebration together. After their meal was concluded, Officers Kennedy and Feliciano wanted to help those in need in their district. They took all of the leftover food from the dinner and, during the course of their patrols that night, provided Thanksgiving meals to more than 20 individuals who hadn’t gotten a home-cooked meal that night, many of them homeless.
“Officers Kennedy and Feliciano went above and beyond the call of duty in what they did to help those in need. Their actions exemplified the Camden County Police Department’s idea of putting Service Before Self,” said Lt. Jeremy Merck.
These are the stories that need to be reported more by the media. Officers Kennedy and Feliciano deserve to be highlighted for their efforts. They are special officers and we want to congratulate them for being the #BllueFriday honorees.
