‘Candy From A Cop’ To Take Place Again In Holden This Year
Police in Holden plan to bring back their "Candy From A Cop" event for the 3rd year in a row.
The program was created in 2020, as a way for families to still get a treat at Halloween, without putting themselves at risk. Since then, it's taken off, and become a sort of tradition in the Holden area.
Through generous donations from local businesses and community members, Holden PD did a kind of reverse trick-or-treating, taking the goodies to the kiddos.
Police Chief Chris Greeley says children whose family members sign up for the event will get a little treat on Halloween day.
"We'll be delivering from around 11 am to 9 pm on Halloween day. Kids will get a bag or box of candy, perhaps a small toy, new stuffed animals, coloring books & crayons, etc."
Chief Greeley says there are multiple ways families in Holden can place their orders.
"Folks can place their order by emailing me at email@example.com, reaching us at @HoldenPolice on Twitter, or calling 843-5442. We'll need some details like the names and ages of the kids/adults we'll be delivering to, an arrival window, (like between 4 and 6 pm as an example), and any other helpful information."
