INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - There is new help for families in Fountain Square thanks to the family of an IMPD officer.
St. Joan of Arc Church officially renamed the food pantry on the south side the David S. Moore Foundation Food Pantry. David's sister, Carol, attended Friday night on behalf of her brother who was gunned down two years ago by a motorist he had pulled over.
The judge of Community Court offered his building to house the pantry on Virginia Avenue as a way to blend the help of police and the courts to help those in need.
"Tonight I want to say thank you to Officer Moore's family, the foundation and all of you who make it possible to treat people like neighbors in the community and get a safer world as a result," Judge David Certo told the crowd.
Judge Certo explains the day he got involved.
"I was sitting in the public defenders office and she had a bowl of candy, but it wasn't Halloween. I asked why do you have that? She said because when my clients get here at 1 p.m. They haven't had anything to eat all day. I knew that was something we could change. If people are involved in theft because they are hungry we can solve that problem."
Officer Moore was a Fever fan. So, at the home opener May 31, the Fever have teamed up to hold a food drive.
