Following the recent shootings of police officers in several states, residents at a growing number of senior living communities have found unique ways to show their support of law officials.

Area police were treated to a free hot lunch at the Arabella of Longview assisted living center in Texas. The menu included chicken spaghetti with green beans and a roll, banana pudding for dessert and their choice of drink. The lunch had been planned for several weeks. Arabella staff welcomed officers for more than three hours.

In Utah, a group of seniors went to local police stations to share bags of candy. Nearly a dozen residents from The Wellington assisted living center in Salt Lake City delivered the sweets, which were packaged in more than 80 “survival kit” bags.
