Holden Police Raising Money for Two Charities With A Raffle of Bruins Gear
The folks at the Holden Police Department are at it again. Not only do they take their duty to Protect and Serve very seriously, but they seem to always be going above and beyond to help worthy causes around them.
After a generous donation to the Special Olympics this June, Holden Police Chief Chris Greeley says the men and women on the force have their sights on more fundraising for a couple of wonderful organizations.
The first organization they hope to help is Camp Capella. According to their website, Camp Capella is: "a lakefront summer camp in Dedham, Maine that provides diverse recreational and educational opportunities for individuals with disabilities."
The other organization Greeley says the Holden Police would like to help is the Travis Mills Foundation, an organization that according to its website:
"supports recalibrated veterans and their families through various programs that help these heroic men and women overcome physical and emotional obstacles, strengthen their families, and provide well-deserved rest and relaxation."
So how do they hope to raise money for these great causes? Raffles!
Greeley says Holden Police has recently received some Boston Bruins memorabilia, including a Bruins jersey signed by all of the players. Greeley says the plan is to split the items up and auction them off for two different causes. The signed jersey will go up on Ebay...
"Every dollar raised will be donated to CampCaPella in Dedham. In addition, we are doing a second in-person raffle of other Bruins' items, which only costs a $1.00 to enter. All THAT money will go to the Travis Mills Foundation, in Manchester, Maine."
The link to the Ebay auction for the jersey, is here. If you want to buy a $1 raffle ticket for the other Bruins stuff, Greeley says you can stop right into the Holden Police Department and pick one up.
