In the midst of craziness and confusion surrounding the novel coronavirus, HPD’s SWAT team has provided a “positive distraction.” In the department’s efforts to do so, it’s delivering a special package with an even more unique delivery method.
The package will consist of lunch donated by Jersey Mike’s Subs and will be delivered via a small robot called an ICOR Mini robot that deploys from the department’s SWAT team trucks.
The winning families are recommended by Boys & Girls Clubs of Harrisonburg-Rockingham, according to the HPD’s press release.
The first delivery has been completed and, according to the release, more deliveries will take place in the upcoming weeks.
A video of the first winning family receiving the package was included in the release.
