Austin cops give to ease hunger

Thursday, March 26, 2020 by Tai Moses

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a devastating financial impact on a lot of Austinites. In an effort to support the community and the local restaurants that are suffering, the Austin Police Association and Austin Cops for Charities donated a total of $10,000 to the Central Texas Food Bank. The organizations also voted to support the restaurants by having them provide hot meals for officers. In a news release, the groups say, “Our officers feel incredibly thankful to still be working and supporting the community that has been so good to us. We encourage our community members to buy local and support our great local business who are suffering dearly during this pandemic.” Community members can help local restaurants and first responders by making a tax-deductible donation at
