All people who donate a gift are welcome to hot chocolate and baked goods.
Santa for Seniors
Tiverton PD has teamed up with Fort Barton Elementary School to bring holiday cheer to seniors that may be spending the holidays alone. The department hopes to prepare several gift baskets to be delivered to seniors between Tuesday, December 20th through Friday, December 23rd. New and unused items can be donated to any of the drop-off locations participating in Operation: Blue Santa. Desired items include soft-cover novels, word search books, crossword puzzle books, word jumble books, jigsaw puzzles, no-slip socks, slippers, bathrobes, blankets, sweaters, scarves, gloves, hats, jams, teas, hard candies, chocolates, cough drops, lip balm, and toiletries.
It's the season of giving, and with the town's help, Tiverton PD hopes to spread love and good cheer for the holidays.
