I was thinking of how thankful I was for the men and women of the Blue Knights, Texas Chapter 42 in Brownsville, Texas. These unselfish law enforcement officers and their families work hard at their respective jobs, but they take time to give back to the communities where they live. Back in October, they partnered with the Lopez Market in Brownsville, Texas and sold around 600 chicken dinners. Here are the Knights and Lady Knights delivering the chicken plates.
With the money raised on the sale of the chicken plates, and other money raised by the Lady Knights in a bake sale held weeks earlier, the Knights were able to purchase 51 Turkey dinners to be delivered to needy families in the Lower Rio Grande Valley.
Last Friday, the Knights of Brownsville Chapter 42 loaded up and set out to deliver the 51 Turkey dinners at churches and schools who had identified families in need. In Harlingen, fellow officers from the Harlingen, TX police department provided us with a police escort.
In Harlingen, Texas a group stopped at Stuart Place Elementary school, and Crockett Elementary school before returning to Brownsville, Texas and meeting up with the group below
Other groups delivered dinners in Los Fresnos and Olmito also. We enjoy riding together for fun and fellowship, but the giving part of our mission brings us the most joy. I'm proud to be a member.
