I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in Cardington that supported me in helping to feed the kids this past summer. From week to week, the kids looked forward to hanging out in the park with the police department and having something to eat. This program was established to show the kids that police officers are their friends and someone they can always go to. I believe I've succeeded.
I would like to mention and thank those businesses and churches in Cardington that helped in supporting this venture.
Subway - At various times throughout the summer, they donated
drinks and fruit for the kids.
Pizza Barn - for the pizza donations.
The Nazarene church - for providing hot dogs, water, chips and cookies.
Lutheran Church - for sponsoring 2 weeks of meals. 15 box
lunches were purchased from Subway and 15 personal pizzas and 1 can of pop were purchased for the second week from the Pirates Cove for the second week.
Suz-E-Q's - donated 15 sundaes.
Morrow County Hospital - donated food for a Thanksgiving meal which included turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans and a piece of pumpkin pie.
To the numerous citizens for making hot dogs and cookies for the kids to enjoy. We raised a total of $372.00 in donations!!
I look forward to holding these events again for the kids next year as the spring and summer months come around. Anyone interested in helping out or contributing, please feel free to reach out to me at the police department.
Remember, it takes a village to raise a child.
Thanks again to everyone!!
Officer Jason Kiefer
