Joint police department sponsors Adopt-A-Family
GRANITE QUARRY — The Granite Quarry-Faith Joint Police Department, in cooperation with Granite Quarry and Faith Elementary schools, is conducting an Adopt-A-Family for Christmas.
“We are asking for your support, and with your help, we are going to provide several families in the community with toys and gifts,” Chief Mark Cook said in a release.
Donation boxes marked “Adopt-A-Family” will be located at the town halls in Granite Quarry and Faith. Items or gift cards can be dropped off at either location, and the gifts do not need to be wrapped.
Contributors should mark their donations to indicate which child the item is for.
“We will have several elves assisting us in wrapping the gifts,” Cook said.
Gifts will be collected through Dec. 19.
Here’s the information for the children in the families:
• Two fourth-grade boys: School uniform and clothing: sizes are boys 12. The children are looking for Nintendo DSI, games for the DSI and PlayStation 2 and other age-appropriate games/toys.
• A seventh-grade boy: Clothing size: pants, men’s 30×31; shirts, men’s medium, socks and underwear, PlayStation 2 games and other age-appropriate games/toys.
• A 12th-grade girl: Clothing size: pants, 18 jeans; gift cards; flat iron for hair; items from Bath and Body Works. This person is hoping to pursue a career in cosmetology. Any items related to this would be welcomed.
If you have any questions or would like to make a contribution, contact Officer Matt Milette or Cook at 704-279-2952.
