SPARTA, NJ- The Sparta Police Department joined the “We’ve Got Your Covered,” campaign collecting new sheets and blankets for Benny’s Bodega. On Wednesday, some of the police families who participated gathered to hand off the collection to Benjamin Davey.
Chief Neil Spidaletto, Officer Brian Porter, Officer Dan Elig, Det. Sgt. Jeff McCarrick, Det. Brian Hassloch, Nancy Porter, Ashley Elig, Shannon McCarrick, Ingrid Hassloch and their children gave more than a dozen bags of bedding to Davey.
Benny’s Bodega works to "provide comfort for the holidays," with Child Protective Services in Newton, as well as any family who reaches out, Davey said.
The non-profit located at 2 Grandview Drive in Newton has been collecting donations of toys, mittens and food from around the county to help children in need in Sussex County.
