<p>STAMFORD, CT - NOVEMBER 24: A Guatemalan immigrant carves the Thanksgiving turkey on November 24, 2016 in Stamford, Connecticut. Family and friends, some of them U.S. citizens, others on work visas and some undocumented immigrants came together in an apartment to celebrate the American holiday with turkey and Latin American dishes. They expressed concern with the results of the U.S. Presidential election of president-elect Donald Trump, some saying their U.S.-born children fear the possibilty their parents will be deported after Trump's inauguration.

The Lansing Township Police Department came together to purchase meals for seven families in Lansing this week.
In the spirit of the holidays, Lieutenant Sandy Lantz from Lansing Township Police reached out to Waverly East Intermediate School to see if any families were in need of a Thanksgiving meal. Lieutenant Lantz wanted to personally purchase food and donate it to a family in the school.
Shortly after, Lieutenant Lantz contacted the school again to share that other officers wanted to help out too. Together they had enough funds to purchase meals for seven families.
“This generous display of kindness from our neighbors at Lansing Township Police has warmed my heart,” said Vicki Tisdale, administrator at Waverly Schools.
