The Police Department is partnering with Madera Housing Authority and numerous local agencies in a pilot program aimed at getting homeless and families in need back on their feet. We will be hosting a donation drive in conjunction with the Madera Police Officers Association in front of the Police Department to gather items needed when housing the first ten families. The donation drive will be Tuesday, November 7, from 8am to 1pm. Come help us fill the command post with kitchen supplies, bedding (full/twin size) and bathroom supplies to help families in need. You can contact Lt Chiaramonte at 675-4253 if you have further questions.
