Way to go Black Mountain and the Swannanoa Valley! Thank you for allowing us to represent this wonderful community!!

Hanging out with Mr. Griffin's class at the Black Mountain Elementary School.

Some more great photos from the Florida hurricane relief trip! Precision Graphics and Cut'n Up Barber Shop and Landscaping brought grills and hotdogs and with the help of BMPD, approximately 700 hotdog meals were served to the citizens of Immokalee. Wow, what an amazing group of volunteers from Black Mountain with huge hearts!

Thank you to everyone who came out to our first Coffee with a Cop! It was a great time of discussion and fellowship. Thanks to the U.S. National Park Service and Chief Ranger Labrie for participating and making the event a success! A very special thank you to Dynamite Roasting for hosting the event. You and your staff are wonderful!!

BMPD officers helping with the "Walk to school day". Had a great time with the community and our kids!!

Additional photos from Florida. This trip touched the not only the hearts of the officers who took the supplies, it touched the whole Department!

A couple of cards we received from members of Immokalee, Florida. We wanted to share these with the community because these are written to all who pitched in!

Special thank you to the Black Mountain Primary School for the supplies for the hurricane relief trip! What a great school!!!

And we're off!!!! We have a truck load of much needed supplies headed to Collier County, Florida! What an accomplishment is such a short period of time (less than 2 weeks)! This could not have been done without the great citizens and businesses of Black Mountain! This community is absolutely amazing!! Safe travels to Officers Guffey and Craig.

Thank you to Precision Graphics for these fantastic large magnet decals for the truck going to Florida for the hurricane relief effort!

*****NOTICE***** Public Services has Sutton Avenue closed from Broadway to Richardson Blvd. Please expect delays or re-routing.

Everything is coming together nicely! The BMPD can't wait to represent the Town of Black Mountain by extending a helping hand to those in need. Thank you again Black Mountain for all the support! This could not happen without you!!!!! Special thank you to Terry and Regina Hicks for the boxes upon boxes of supplies, Ingles, Hunters and Treasures, ABC Store and the Tractor Supply in Black Mountain for all the boxes to pack the items in, Kiwanis and ADACT for the clothes, Lees McRae College for the huge box of shirts, Brooks at Lowes Hardware in Banner Elk for the roofing nails, Ice River Springs and the Church in Montreat (sorry I don't have your name please post if you know) for the water and all the citizens who dropped items by the department. (Please forgive me if I've missed anyone as it is not on purpose!) THANK YOU EVERYONE!! Remember, tomorrow is the last day of collecting as we leave Friday to deliver the items.

Thank you to Mrs. Bell's class at the Black Mountain Elementary School for their donation to the hurricane relief effort! What a great class!!!

Hurricane relief supplies coming in! We will be organizing the supplies over the next few nights. We are off to Collier County, Florida on Friday morning to pass out supplies from you, the citizens of the Town of Black Mountain. We are collecting supplies through Thursday so keep them coming. We are in need of baby food and diapers as those items are in high demand. Thank you Black Mountain! You have been outstanding and the love shown will surely be felt in Florida!
