The Orange Police Youth and Community officers are trying something new this year, and the police department is hoping that this will be as successful as some of its other community-outreach endeavors.
Detectives Ryan DePolo and Carolyn Bailey, in partnership with Orange Community Services, have set up a ‘Holiday Giving Tree’ in the lobby vestibule at Orange Police headquarters, 314 Lambert Road.
On this tree are different angel ornaments. Each of these ornaments is dedicated to one boy or girl living in the Town of Orange. On each angel, there is the child’s name and the things he or she would like to receive for the holiday season.
The police are hoping that people will pick an angel from the tree and fulfill that child’s holiday wishes.
The items you pick for the child in need can be dropped at the Orange PD headquarters in care of either Detective DePolo or Detective Bailey. Please wrap the gifts and indicate which child you picked when doing so.
