What a wonderful way to kick off the holidays, AP! Our Sgt. Anders Cops for Tots Toy Drive and Holiday Meal Delivery programs were a huge success this year.
We appreciate the generous donations and all your contributions this holiday season. Though we were not able to keep up with all the donations, we still very publicly would like to thank each of you who donated – THANK YOU! Here’s the breakdown…
This year through our partnership with the Crossroads Church, we received just over 60 toy request applications. Of those requests, 144 children received toys. These requests were fulfilled from toys donated along with toys purchased with cash donations. Our community is so giving, and those in need are quite blessed this year. Thank you again, AP!
When it comes to the Holiday Meal Drive, we received an unprecedented number of requests for meal kits this year. It is likely a record year for this program! Some families as large as nine or more required meal assistance.
Staff worked diligently to make sure the larger families received more to feed their entire family. Generally, each family received more this year than in years past. In total, we were able to provide holiday meal kits for just under 70 families. In years prior, our family numbers were more around the 30-mark.
Again, we thank each and every one of you who contributed to this year’s Sgt. Anders Cops for Tots and Holiday Meal Drive programs. Our success and the community’s benefit would not have been possible without this close community partnership!
