A team of New Jersey police officers tried to restore some calmness to their town through the comfort of pizza.

Three police associations in Toms River, New Jersey, joined forces to purchase 300 pizzas for their community. Everyone in the area is under a statewide stay-at-home order to halt the spread of coronavirus. Officer Jesse Robertazzi told CNN that they wanted to give the families in their community an easy way to cope with the uncertain times of social distancing, "For families, it gave them a sense of normality by getting out of the house and getting into their favorite pizza shop."

All families had to do was stop in the pizza shop and pick up their pizza. The police officers knew it would boost the morale of the community while also supporting the local businesses. All of the pizza shops that contributed were sold out within 90 minutes.
