RANDOLPH — Chief William Pace and the Randolph Police Department would like to thank several community organizations and partners that have donated items over the past several weeks for the department to distribute to families in Randolph this season.
The Randolph Police Department would like to thank residents, as well as Ocean State Job Lot, Orangetheory Fitness of Dedham and the Stoughton Police Department.
Ocean State Job Lot donated an $800 gift card that was used to purchase clothes and other essential items for school children and their family members. The department would like to thank Jim Black, J.R. Mitchell, Keith Cruz and Daniekqun Reddick of Ocean State Job Lot.
Orangetheory Fitness of Dedham held a toy drive at their gym. Owner Kerri Bliss and Manager Michelee Chery donated the toys from the drive to the department.
The Stoughton Police Department conducted a toy drive as well and donated some of what it had collected to the Randolph Police Department’s toy drive. The department would like to thank Stoughton Police Sgt. Nate Derby, Officer Matthew Gada and Officer Michael Connolly.
The donations, paired with donations from residents to the Randolph Police Toys for Tots drive, allowed the department to donate toys, clothes and other essential items to dozens of families between all of the schools in the Randolph Public Schools. The items were distributed by officers to the various schools in the district on Monday, Dec. 21.
“We’d like to thank each of these community partners for their valuable contributions to this year’s drive, as well as our residents for their donations and continued support of our community,” Chief Pace said. “The donations helped us to give toys and other important supplies to many families in Randolph this season.”
The department would also like to thank the Randolph Public Schools staff and Kimberly Duane of the district administration for their assistance with distribution.
