Police Chief Anthony F. Colarusso, Jr. announced that the Dover Police Department is now accepting names of needy families residing in Dover for the annual Holiday Food Basket Program.

The Police Department sponsors this program each December to provide holiday dinners to families in Dover. Last year, more than 150 baskets of food were distributed to families throughout the community, which provided meals to more than 500 people.

In addition, a large quantity of food was provided to a local soup kitchen, the Food Pantry, the Dover Children’s Home and My Friend’s Place homeless shelter.

In order to make this program a success, donations are needed from the community. Non-perishable food items, canned goods, or monetary donations (checks should be made payable to Dover Police Charities) will be accepted at the Dover Police Department, 46 Chestnut St. If you cannot arrange for delivery to the police station, call 603-742-4646 and pick up will be arranged.
