Orangeville Police thank residents for supporting open house and food bank
The Orangeville Police Service wishes to thank residents for the support shown during their open house and charity BBQ in recognition of Crime Prevention Week this past Saturday.
On Saturday, November 9th, the Orangeville Police Service opened its doors to the public for building tours and an opportunity to speak with Chief Wayne Kalinski and Deputy Chief Leah Gilfoy. Ontario’s Solicitor General Sylvia Jones was also in attendance.
The event also featured a charity BBQ, accepting donations to the Orangeville Food Bank. On Tuesday November 12, OPS delivered 484 pounds of food and $390.65 in cash donations to the food bank.
“We are extremely thankful for the generosity shown by the residents who attended our event”, said Chief Kalinski. “This was by far the largest turnout we’ve had for an open house and we are grateful for the support of our community”.
Orangeville Police will continue to accept food donations throughout the Christmas holidays. For residents who are not able to get to the Orangeville Police Service, volunteers from the Orangeville Police Auxiliary Unit would be happy to make arrangements to pick up donations. Please call 519-941-2522 extension 2221 to arrange for this service.
