"Normally, we would have had a big dinner for the senior citizens in-person at Pompey Park," Chief Javaro Sims said in a statement to Fox News. "But because of COVID-19, we couldn't do it this year. Handing out the Thanksgiving baskets was the best way we could say thank you to our seniors."
The department said they handed out "100 Turkeys in all, with plenty of sides,” Tuesday morning, Ted White, the department’s spokesman, told Fox News. “Most of the recipients are part of the senior program at Pompey Park. We also gave turkeys to other seniors citizens in the community.”
