LPD to deliver Meals on Wheels in honor of Peace Officers' Memorial Day

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

(Press Release)

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers’ Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. This year, on Wednesday, May 16th, the Lubbock Police Department will deliver all of Lubbock Meals on Wheels’ hot lunches to over 750 recipients on 55 different routes.

We appreciate the support we receive from LPD each year. We are excited to have LPD officers help provide meals to our home-bound, elderly, and disabled recipients.

LPD will be at Lubbock Meals on Wheels’ office between 10:30am and 11:15am to pick up meals for delivery.

Every day, but especially during Police Week, please be sure to show your appreciation to LPD and all local Peace Officers. They put their lives on the line everyday and provide support in more ways than most of us realize.

Lubbock Meals on Wheels is not government funded, nor are we a United Way agency. We are able to feed over 750 home-bound people thanks to generous support from the Lubbock Community.


WHO: Lubbock Meals on Wheels & Lubbock Police Department

WHAT: LPD Delivers

WHEN: Wednesday, May 16, 10:30am-Noon

WHERE: 2304-34th Street
