Cedar Grove Police Collecting Care Packages for
United States Military Personnel Serving Overseas 

          The Cedar Grove Police Department has announced they will once again be collecting donations for care packages to send to our troops serving overseas this Holiday Season.  Thanks to the generosity of our residents, last year’s drive was a great success and we were able to send care packages to many of our soldiers away from their families during the Holidays.  Examples of items being sought include personal items such as toothbrushes, shampoo, disposable razors, shaving cream and body wash, snack items such as Pringles, crackers, cookies, hard candy, beef jerky and miscellaneous items such as comic books, playing cards, crossword puzzles, computer memory sticks, pens, notebooks and envelopes.  A copy of the complete list is available at the police desk.  Any person wishing to donate items can leave donations in the collection bin located in the Cedar Grove Municipal Building Lobby.  We will be collecting items until January 1, 2013.  Please help us say thank you to our troops by sending them a little piece of home.  Anyone having questions can call Lt. Erik Hansson or Sgt. Eileen O’Toole at 973-239-4100.
