Once again the holidays are just around the corner. Every year at Christmas the Belmont Police Department works with a local non-profit organization to provide Christmas gifts to women and children in need. This is a program our department has performed now for several years and would not be possible without the charitable donations from the citizens and community organizations of Belmont. Your gifts are 100% tax-deductible and all donations go to this cause. Contributions can be sent to the Belmont Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association, P.O. Box 1321, Belmont, NC 28012. Make your checks payable to BCPAAA and mail them to the address above or drop them off at the Police Department if you wish. Thank you for your consideration in support of providing gifts to those less fortunate women and children in Belmont this Holiday season.
