“We wanted to do something for the elderly if they didn’t want to get out of their car, that way they could just drive up, drop the meds to us or in a box, whatever they feel comfortable with,” Corporal Brandon Ritchie with the Mount Holly Springs Police Department said.

According to an email from Ritchie, this will most likely become a yearly event.
