The Weldon Police Department completed two community service projects — one from its Let it Grow for Cancer effort and the other a toy drive held in conjunction with other area law enforcement agencies.

Let it Grow

Chief Chris Davis said the department raised $426 from the effort, which was part of No Shave November.

That money was donated to Lois Cain, whose husband was fighting cancer. The police department was given the name of Mrs. Cain and her husband, who, Davis said, “Unfortunately lost his battle to cancer last week.”

The police department made the donation to Mrs. Cain in her husband’s honor. “We hope it may help with some unexpected costs,” Davis said in a statement.

Davis said Mrs. Cain has indicated the money will be used to help pay for expenses associated with his burial.

“The Weldon Police Department would like to thank everyone who donated during this campaign and especially Lighthouse of Deliverance for the donations from their congregation,” Davis said.

Corporal Q. Godley and Administrative Assistant C. Adkins delivered the donation to Mrs. Cain.

Toy drive

The Weldon Police Department delivered toys collected during the toy drive at Walmart on December 7 and 8.

It was a drive held in collaboration with Roanoke Rapids, Enfield, Scotland Neck and Littleton police departments along with First Media Radio.

Weldon City Schools helped relay names for families who needed assistance so their children would have toys for Christmas. “We would like to thank everyone that donated during the toy drive. It was a great success,” Davis said.

Sergeant  T. Mason, Godley, and Adkins distributed the toys.
