ROSELLE PARK, NJ - After hearing the local Casano Center's food pantry was running low on food this holiday, members of the Roselle Park PBA Local 27, wanted to help out.
The officers went to work and were able to collect enough food to make donations to Casano Center’s food pantry and the Church of Assumption, and delivered it on Wednesday afternoon, in time for those needing it for Thanksgiving.
According to Det. Gregory Polakoski, “We heard the Casano Center food pantry was running low so we wanted to help out. No one in town should go without a Thanksgiving dinner. We have a lot to be thankful for here in Roselle Park and we wanted to pay it forward.”
Police Chief Daniel J. McCaffery added, "The Roselle Park P.B.A. and our officers continue to do an outstanding job providing outreach to our community on multiple levels. I am proud of the work they do on a daily basis."
All of the food was donated by the officers of the Roselle Park P.B.A. Local 27 and former Councilman Eugene Meola who donated a turkey.
