Wake Forest Police accepting donations of bottled water

Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - 1:31pm

The Wake Forest Police Department (WFPD) is now accepting donations of bottled water which they will distribute to users of the Town’s greenways.

For the fourth consecutive year, members of the WFPD are distributing bottles of iced water while patrolling Town greenways. Officers regularly patrol the trails in all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) purchased through a grant. 

“Handing out bottles of water to local residents who are using our greenways is a great way for officers to interact with the public, while also providing a useful service, especially when it’s hot,” said Wake Forest Police Chief Jeff Leonard.

Any business, individual or family wishing to donate one or more cases of bottled water may drop them off at the Police Department Main Station, located at 225 S. Taylor St. For more information, contact Lt. Julius Jefferson at 919-554-6150 or jjefferson@wakeforestnc.gov.
