This December vacation week, the Wakefield Police Department is offering a child safety camp for kids ages 8-12. The national radKIDS curriculum is a fun, activity-based program including lectures, safety drills, physical skills, and dynamic simulation.
Your donation could turn into $1200 for the Greenwood School! A donation box will be in the main hall across from the office (next to the cutout of Guss the Gator), until January 5. Winter coats of all sizes will be accepted, from baby to adult.
Face painting, refreshments, raffles, and more! Keep the giving spirit of the late Officer Albie Sarafian alive at this great children's event. Albie was a member of the Greenwood School family, a police officer in the town, and an organizer of the WPD's Toys for Tots fundraiser. Please bring one donated gift for each child attending.
