NBSB Donates $5,000 Toward New Police Cruiser
NORTH BROOKFIELD — North Brookfield Savings Bank recently announced a donation of $5,000 to a citizen-driven campaign to help the North Brookfield Police Department purchase a new police cruiser. The campaign was initiated by concerned citizens following the defeat of a debt-exclusion measure that would have provided funds for two new police vehicles.
“North Brookfield Savings Bank was inspired by the efforts of local residents and by the opportunity to help the North Brookfield Police Department meet the town’s public-safety needs. We cannot say enough about NBPD’s efforts protecting the community, including our headquarters and main office. We are very pleased to contribute to this unique campaign,” said NBSB President and CEO Donna Boulanger.
Added NBPD Chief of Police Aram Thomasian Jr., “the North Brookfield Police Department and North Brookfield Savings Bank have always enjoyed a great working relationship, and this donation is a great benefit to the community we share. We were truly overwhelmed by the bank’s generosity and by the efforts of those who initiated this campaign. Thank you to North Brookfield Savings Bank for all your support.”
It is estimated that one new, fully equipped police vehicle will cost approximately $40,000. To join the cause, send checks made out to the Town of North Brookfield, with the memo “Police Cruiser Donation,” to: North Brookfield Board of Selectmen, 215 North Main St., North Brookfield, MA 01535.
