GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Thanks to an anonymous donor, officers with the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety were able to shop with local seniors on Saturday.

Money from the “generous donor” helped officers support a number of seniors with a trip to the Park Street Market, located at 512 N. Park Street.

A release from the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety said the program, in its first year, allowed officers and city employees to interact with the seniors in a positive setting, building relationships and helping the seniors develop a sense of community.

The seniors were able to fill their carts during the trip with much needed resources, KDPS said.
