Charles City PD’s “Night Out” Gives Away Backpacks, Shoes to Kids

The MercyOne AirMed helicopter made a stop at Tuesday’s “National Night Out” hosted by the Charles City Police Department.

Community Resource Officer Duane Ollendiek says there was a great turnout at Central Park and the department sees the event as a valuable way to promote police-community partnerships.

Ollendiek says all 200 back-to-school backpacks were given away thanks to Zoetis and the Salvation Army.  He also commended Valero for coordinating the giving away of dozens of shoes to kids.
