(KMOV.com) -- Police in North County spreading some holiday cheer Saturday just in time for Thanksgiving.
A truck-load of turkeys was distributed today by St. Louis County Police officers as they partnered with the Demetrius Johnson Foundation.
Johnson was a star football player at Mizzou.
Officers said they enjoyed delivering the turkeys.
“Often times, we’re out dealing with crime,” said St. Louis County Captain Troy Doyle, “But if you give us the opportunity to give something back to the community, we’re more than happy to partner with the Demetrius Johnson Foundation to do this.”
About 100 turkeys went to families in Glasgow Village, Spanish Lake, Jennings, and Castle Point.
