NFDL Food For Families Program
The North Fond du Lac Police Department/North Fond du Lac Police Benevolent Association is gearing up for their annual ‘Food for Families’ program. The Police Benevolent Association adopts a number of area families for the Christmas holiday and provides them with gifts and groceries. We are hopeful that area businesses, churches, schools, and individuals will again support the police department in their effort to brighten the holiday season for less fortunate families.
Each year the employees of the police department look forward to having the opportunity to brighten the holiday season for area families that are in need of a little assistance. This is important to the police department because it’s an opportunity to help others, and it allows for officers to interact with residents in a more positive light than might usually be associated with police contacts. If you know of any families who are in need of assistance this holiday season, please have them contact us to fill out an application.
We are no longer accepting donations of food items / canned goods. Instead, we are asking donors to contribute money and/or gift cards. Additionally, we have identified a need for the following items:
- New, in package socks & underwear (any size) for children, women & men
- New winter jackets (any size) for children, women & men
- New, in package paper products, such as toilet paper, kleenex, paper towel, etc.
- Toiletries, such as bodywash, shampoo, toothpaste/brushes, etc.
Donations of these items and new, in-package toys can be dropped off at the North Fond du Lac Police Department, which is located at 16 Garfield Street. Business hours for the Police Department are Monday-Friday 8AM-4:30PM. Any groups or individuals that are interested in donating or contributing are asked to contact Karie Tackett or Teresa Mielkie at the North Fond du Lac Police Department. They can be reached at 920-929- 3760 during regular business hours.
