MILWAUKEE -- A couple Milwaukee police officers helped spread holiday cheer on Monday.
Officers went door to door with boxes of food for families in need. The officers chose the receiving families themselves.
Chief Edward Flynn said it's not just a chance to provide food, but also fellowship.
"The members of this department care about the people that live here not just as crime statistics or numbers to lower, they are real people, with real needs, trying to realize the American dream constantly, against the backdrop of a real challenge and real risk to themselves and their children," he said.
Roundy's donated all of the food delivered to families.
