A-PD says donations to their Christmas programs netted $10-k


January 7th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

Atlantic Police Chief Steve Green reports thanks to donations from local citizens and businesses, over $10,000 was spent this past Christmas through two programs designed to serve families and children in need.  Green says the donations enabled the Police Department’s annual programs to serve more than 45-children and 14 adults. Those persons were able to have a Christmas that was otherwise not going to happen.

The A-PD’s Officers and Reserve  Officers offer their thanks and blessings on everyone who made a contribution to their Christmas programs, regardless of the amount you contributed. The Christmas programs have been offered for many years, and evolved from just a few Reserve Officers repairing bicycles for children, during the 1980’s.

Chief Green says both of the department’s programs are sustained through the generosity of the citizens of Atlantic, the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign, and local business partners.
