You have all heard jokes about cops and donuts. But this is no joke. Holden Police Department went into the Dunkin Donuts at 1A and 46 and stunned the crew working with a $100 tip.

That was the first of many, many good things happening during their annual ’25 Days of Kindness’ which kicked off this week.

They have collected thousands and thousands of dollars worth of donations so far, and are still looking for toys for all aged children, clothing, non perishable food and of course cash. Cash is king.

“It's fun to make positive connections with the community, especially in such a tough year". Holden Police Chief Chris Greeley told Q106.5  "Lots of time, interactions with a Police Officer isn't high on people's bucket list. So if we can help someone with an act of kindness, it brings joy to us, and hopefully them too"

Chief Greeley is considered a friend of Q106.5  If truth be known, it’s only in case we get into trouble and need him to help us.  Kidding Chris.  Kidding. Chris is always more fun on the air then Police Chiefs are expected to be. Hopefully that didn’t get me into trouble with other Police Departments, but if it did, I know somebody who will help smooth things over.
