The Dudley Police Department collected donations for needy families during the holiday season.  Many people and area businesses made generous contributions to this worthwhile cause.  A large volume of toys, clothing, and other gifts were provided to Dudley residents who needed assistance during these difficult times.  These were distributed on Wednesday, December 20th.

Thanks to the generosity of those who donated, approximately 30 local families, including some 65 children, will enjoy the holiday season when they would have otherwise gone without.  Special thanks go out to Officers Chandler Boyd and Marek Karlowicz for coordinating and organizing this year’s drive once again.  Also, a special thank you goes out to the members of the Webster-Dudley Boys and Girls Club, the Dudley Women’s Club, Jimmy’s Pizza, Dean Mason Paving, the Fels’ Family Foundation, The Bliss Family from Dudley and Nichols College Public Safety for their assistance with this program.  The left over toys will be distributed to local families through Webster-Dudley Food Share.

The Dudley Police Department would like to thank the many residents and all the others whose generosity to this worthwhile cause made this a success once again.  We wish everyone a Happy, Healthy, and Safe Holiday Season and New Year.
