Roanoke Police deliver Christmas dinner to local apartment residents

By  | 

ROANOKE, Va. 9 (WDBJ7) Officer Jacob Kaufmann knocked on the door of a Landsdowne Apartment resident Christmas afternoon, carrying dinner for whoever answered.

He was one of about a dozen Roanoke Police members who went door-to-door Saturday delivering meals to the Northwest complex.

"I think that it humanizes us a little bit more so we're not so robotic and everything like that," Kaufmann said. "People might sometimes encounter us in negative circumstances. It's good to get out there and show we can serve in other ways."

The meals were provided by Jobs-Plus in Roanoke.
