Norristown Police Officer Steve Sowell said it best:
"There's a lot of kids in Norristown, a lot of young men, who are doing the right thing. They're giving back to the community and they're doing the right thing, the right way."
Sowell was referring specifically to the small group of footballers from Stewart Middle School who joined him at Montgomery County Central MH/MR on Wednesday to serve lunch and hand out presents to patients at the facility. The students even dressed up as holiday elves!
The boys were working with Sowell as part of the Student Resource Officer mentoring partnership between the school district and the Norristown Police Department.
