Following a cash donation, Jackson Police Officers went in search of people doing good for others and those in need to offer a little needed holiday cheer and $50.  Here are some of their stories:

Officer Garrett Kellams knew he'd be able to find someone at St. John's Medical Center who deserved recognition for service above and beyond the call of duty.  After talking to a couple of people one name kept coming up, Patricia Mull.  So Officer Kellams went searching for Patty and soon found her at a nurses station.  Patty was surprised, saying she was worried Officer Kellams was there to arrest her, but he was there to recognize her for her outstanding service.

Police officers often meet people under less than ideal circumstances but always try to make the situation a little better. On Christmas Eve Sergeant Weber responded to the scene of domestic violence. The suspect was arrested and the violence stopped but there was something else that caught the eye of officers, there were no presents under the family tree. Thanks to the generous donation to the police department, Sgt. Weber was able to offer a little holiday cheer and some money to help make the holidays a little brighter.

Officer Kellams found Alicia Whissel volunteering at Community Safety Network on Christmas Eve.  CSN is the local non-profit shelter for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking; a fantastic local resource. We appreciate Alicia's willingness to serve and were happy to award her with $50.
