This morning, the Concord-Carlisle Community Chest held its annual “Day of Giving.” I attended the event and represented Communities for Restorative Justice’s (C4RJ) police partners. C4RJ was one of the grant recipients along with a number of non-profit organizations who are delivering needed services. Prior to the awarding of a grant, the mission of the receiving organization was presented to the audience. Each organization is making a difference by helping others. Our Department is committed to community policing and many of the groups partner with us on a regular basis, to ensure individuals and families whom we serve receive assistance when needed.
To the Concord-Carlisle Community Chest and those who support their efforts of “neighbors helping neighbors”, I wish to thank you!
Chief Joseph F. O’Connor
