Big Rapids Police gearing up for 2021 Season of Giving

Big Rapids Police Chief Danielle Haynes is proud to announce the Big Rapids Department of Public Safety, Police Division, is hosting the second annual Season of Giving gift drive to benefit Eagle Village.


Eagle Village is a 681-acre campus in Hersey that serves hundreds of kids each year through residential treatment, adoption and foster care, short-term interventions, and specialized summer camps. In 2020, they had 110 kids in residential care, they placed 62 kids in foster care, completed 20 successful adoptions, and had 225 kids either attend summer camps or complete Challenge Weekends. They have been doing this for over 53 years.


The Season of Giving Gift Drive was launched by the Big Rapids Police Department in 2020. With the
help from department members, residents, local businesses and organizations, BRPD donated more
than 700 gifts to Eagle Village.


“We were overwhelmed by the success of this toy drive last year and we are excited to do it again this
year.”
said Chief Danielle Haynes. “The outpouring of support in 2020 really shows how the citizens of
Big Rapids and the surrounding communities are always willing to come out and help each other.”


The holiday gift drive will take place on Saturday, December 11th, from 9 a.m.- Noon at The Big Rapids Department of Public Safety, 435 N. Michigan Ave. Santa and his “reindeer” Boomer will be on site to accept your donation and take pictures with. Masks are encouraged and appreciated, and selfies with Santa and Boomer are a given!


Please see the attached list for items that Eagle Village needs. For more information on the event, contact Officer William Sell at 231-527-0005 or wsell@cityofbr.org.
