Season of Giving kicks into gear at Big Rapids Department of Public Safety

The season of giving started a bit early at the Big Rapids Department of Public Safety as gift donations have already began rolling in for a December 11th event to benefit Eagle Village.

 

Big Rapids Officer William Sell says they have already had a few visitors looking to donate. 

 

"We’ve gotten a bunch of toys and there's a woman coming up from Kalamazoo to bring us 50 blankets.” "Last year we collected a lot of toys and gifts for the kids at Eagle Village, so I'm just hoping that we can get even more this year.” Sell said.

 

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.
