“Personnel of Punta Gorda Police Formation made a generous presentation yesterday to a family in Toledo. The presentation of a food hamper was done by WPC Aretha Gordon of Punta Gorda Community Policing Unit on behalf of Toledo Police Formation.
“After viewing news clips from PG TV a few weeks ago about a family that lives in Elridgeville Toledo, I inquired and visited the home where I spoke to the mother Ms. Marcela Jackson who needs for her family and three children with disabilities. We, the Community Policing Officers of the Punta Gorda Police formation would like to hand over food hamper basket and other assorted items to Ms. Marcela Jackson as the recipient for the month of January 2018. We sure that these items will be a great deal to the family, special thanks to Courts staff Punta Gorda Branch, Punta Gorda Hospital Staff, Nutrition Department of the Punta Gorda Hospital and Ms. Charlotte Jacobs of Jacintoville for their collaboration towards this cause.
Recipient of the food hamper with a variety of nutritious food items and other needed communities Marcela Jackson expressed words of gratitude.
“I would like to say thanks to the Police Community Service for helping us; we really appreciate because we are family who really need. Me and my husband Rudolph Ramclam with three special needs children is very hard. He has no job and we appreciate anything they can give us.
Presentation of food hampers to needed families in Toledo is an ongoing monthly outreach service project of Punta Gorda Community Policing Unit.
