Police Department Community Turkey Project Is Huge Success

From the Middletown Police Department.
We would like to thank everyone who donated during our two day Turkey Drive. We collected 702 turkeys and $1774 which will all go to The Middletown Community Thanksgiving Project!

We would not have gotten all of this done without all of our volunteers. We want to thank Chief McKenna for supporting and participating in the project along with Capt. Moriarty, Lt. Maturo, Officer Hertler, Ofc. Tyrseck, and Det. Semper. We also want to thank our Middletown Police Explorers and their advisors, Det. Liseo, Det. Rowland, Ofc. Austin Smith and Ofc. Murphy.

  • Thank you: Ret. Ofc. Bill Warner helped organize this huge event.
  • Thank you: Ret. Ofc. LaTerra and the patrons of the Red Dog Saloon donated turkeys.
  • Thank you: Heidi Voight @ NBC30CT for promoting this event.
