ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) - After recent shootings involving law enforcement, some local residents took it upon themselves to show their appreciation by performing small acts of kindness.

From St. Charles County to the Metro East, strangers have been giving officers food and water.

Friday morning, members of the Collinsvillle Police Department showed up to work to find a couple of dozens of donuts had been dropped off and additional items were delivered throughout the day.

In Ballwin, Andrew Kulha, brought water to the officers from St. Louis County, Ballwin, and other departments assisting in the investigation of the Ballwin officer shooting. Kulha said, "[It's] been a rough few days to be in officer," when explaining what his motivation was behind the gesture.

St. Peters Police also received a delivery of Starbucks drinks, donuts, cookies and other snacks.
 

Granite City Police thanked the public on their Facebook page. They received 52 pizzas, five cases of soda and more from community members.
