COATS FOR VETS in Plainfield
The Plainfield Police Department is participating in the state-wide COATS FOR VETS program. Chief Justin Litchfield received 15 bright orange Home Depot 5-gallon buckets…each one contains a winter coat, snacks, fresh water, and a hygienic face mask. Designed for veterans in need of support, including the warm winter coat, buckets will be given to any vet requesting one. Designed and sponsored by the Massachusetts Military Support Foundation and the Massachusetts State Police, additional program sponsors include the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police, Home Depot, Ocean State Job Lots and the Patriots Foundation.
Chief Litchfield said buckets are available at the Plainfield Police Station and officers will carry them in police cruisers as well. “As history has shown, our veterans are often reluctant to ask for help,” explained Chief Litchfield. Having the buckets readily available means immediate help in the warm winter coat and fresh snacks, as well as the outreach experience of support to any veteran in need.
SandersonAcademy students and staff had their annual 5K Road Race Thursday morning October 28. The course was Route 112 to the Ashfield Golf course and back. Police officers and Fire Department members from Plainfield and Ashfield were on hand to provide safety and monitor the event. Staff, students and community participants as well as public safety personnel agreed the annual event was exciting and successful.
