Jackson's police department, Elks Lodge to help children at Chr

Monday, November 29, 2004

The Jackson Police Department is accepting donations of toys and money to assist in its Toys for Tots campaign to help needy children at Christmas. The police department teams up with the Jackson Elks Lodge each year to provide food, toys and clothing for distribution to children from newborn to age 12. Donations may be delivered to the police department any time day or night until Dec. 8.

Perishable items such as hams and bread are purchased from donations and included in the baskets along with clothing collected by the Lady Elks. The lodge will distribute 250 baskets this year.

Those who feel they qualify may call the Jackson Elks Lodge at 243-1259. Someone will take the necessary information and then get back in touch. Donation questions may also be directed to the police department's Officer Dooley, Sergeant Tisha Hecht or Lieutenant Chris Mouser.

Santa will be at the Jackson Elk's Lodge Dec. 16 to hand out the goodies.
