HUTCHINSON, Kan. — The chaplains for law enforcement and the fire department in Hutchinson are going to feed those they serve on Thanksgiving.

"This Thursday, we are providing Thanksgiving meals to our law enforcement, fire department and all first responders that will be out there protecting us and serving us while we are enjoying Thanksgiving with our family," said Chaplain Richard Haley.

They are able to do this thanks to food from Village Inn in Hutchinson and funds provided by Elliott Mortuary.

"We are delivering them to the different stations where they will be at so they can enjoy the meal as they are able," Haley said. "This is for the noon meal for those that are serving. We'll be delivering 65 meals to the various stations and the law enforcement center."

This is the first year for the chaplains to provide this service.

"This is our first time doing this," Haley said. "I sure want to thank Adam Wooten, who is also a chaplain with me, he and I came up with this idea to help and be a blessing. This is our first year. We look forward to building on it in the years to come."
