Elementary students make candy bags for cops
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – One local elementary school decided to show its appreciation for police officers by giving them a sweet treat.
Students at Chimney Lakes Elementary School of Argyle Forest Boulevard on the Westside put together bags of candy that they dropped off at the police substation in Zone 2 for all police officers.
Attached to each bag of candy was a note titled "Survival Kit for Police," explaining the significance of each piece of candy included in the bag:
- Lifesaver: to remind you of the many times you've been one
- Starburst: for the burst of energy that you need
- Payday: since you're not doing it for the money
- Hersey Kisses: to show our love for you
- Gum: to help everyone stick together
- Tootsie Roll: you have to roll with the punches
- Peppermint Patty: helping you keep your cool
- Snickers: to help keep your humor
- Mounds: for the mounds of courage you show
