SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Springfield Police Department enjoyed a fine lunch Thursday courtesy of their admirers at Carando Meat Products.
Carando showed their appreciation with an early Easter lunch, with all the fixings, and in the past had served Christmas dinners to Springfield firefighters and the airmen at Barnes Air National Guard base in Westfield.
“Actually I feel great, and a good look for the Springfield Police Department. We appreciate Carando accommodating our officers with this meal. Normally we expect sandwiches for lunch,” said Springfield Police Sgt. Charles Howard.
The Easter lunch is part of an ongoing campaign named “Carando Cares,” which focuses on helping organizations that make a positive difference in New England. Carando first delivered hams to Boston’s fire stations in 2013. They’ve also served meals to children at Shriners Hospital for Children in Boston, treated the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Maine.
