Green Bay Police hand out 'blessing bags' during the holidays

GREEN BAY, Wis. - The Green Bay Police Department worked to make the holidays a little brighter for those in need Wednesday.

Officers handed out "blessing bags" as part of their Light of Christmas community initiative.

The bags include hats, socks, hand warmers, toiletries and other items people might need during the cold winter months.

“As a department, we all want to help out," explained Chief Andrew Smith. "That is why we are in this field. Anything we can do to help them brave the cold months and put a smile on a person’s face is priceless."

Officers also handed out gift cards to a variety of restaurants. 

The bags and gift cards were donated to the department by Q90 FM and various Light of Christmas sponsors.
