ALEXANDER CITY, AL (WSFA) - A heartfelt donation to a local community center will help hundreds of children this summer in Alexander City.
Members of the police department, Tallapoosa County Sheriff's Department, State Bureau of Investigation and a local motorcycle club called "Brother's Keeper" lent a helping hand at the Cooper Community Center on Friday.
They gave 100 cases of water to the facility to be used during different activities during the hot summer months.
It's the fourth year local law enforcement and community organizations have united for the project and made the charitable donation.
"It helps us to get an opportunity to see their side, for one thing and for them to see our side, the things we go through to make sure the kids are safe. When they see them here and about, then that helps us to keep things in order so it's a great opportunity for this community as a whole," said Herbert Harrell, Cooper Community Center director.
The water will be used by the recreation center for softball players and a workout program for high school students.
