This Thursday (Nov. 10) a special group of teens will travel to the Danbury Police station to express their thanks.

Teens from the Greek Orthodox Youth Association (G.O.Y.A.) from the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church on Clapboard Ridge Rd. in Danbury will be traveling to the Danbury Police Department this Thursday to deliver care packages for each police officer in the department. Why are these teens doing this you might ask? It's all part G.O.Y.A's plan to make a difference in the community, so the kids in G.O.Y.A chose to personally thank the Danbury Police Department to express their thanks and gratitude for their hard work and service to the Danbury community.

G.O.Y.A teens have adopted Make A Difference Day, which was originally created in 1992 by USA Weekend Magazine. Many organizations have adopted this special day as a way to "actually make a difference" in themselves, along with making a difference in the world. It's all about helping people whether it's holding a food drive for the hungry or holding a coat drive for the homeless. It can also be as simple as buying someone a cup of coffee.

Hats off to the teens who are part of G.O.Y.A through Danbury's Greek Orthodox Church. It's fantastic to see young adults doing some good for the hood and making a difference.
