Newton PD receives Target grant
NEWTON, NC (May 21, 2012) -- The Target Distribution Center in Newton recently awarded a $1,000 grant to the Newton Police Department, which plans to use the money to purchase and distribute portable weather radios to those on the department’s senior citizens call list.
Chief Don Brown said he appreciates Target’s generosity and partnership with the police department. “Target is a wonderful corporate partner, and I look forward to continuing our relationship for years to come. I am grateful for this grant as we will utilize these funds to help ensure the safety of our local senior citizens,” Brown stated.
Target Distribution Center General Manager Kyle Garrett said he is proud to be a part of this community. “Since 1946, Target has given 5 percent of its income to communities. Today, that totals more than $3 million in giving every week and this week is no different. We are proud to support our partners at the Newton Police Department and our senior citizens,” Garrett said.
The City of Newton and the Police Department would like to express their sincere appreciation to the Target Distribution Center for this grant.
