MAPLE PARK POLICE DROP-IN CENTER GETS DONATION

img_0737On September 20, 2016, the Maple Park Drop-In Center was given a donation in the amount of $7,000, which was from proceeds from the Rich Ferdinand Memorial Golf Outing. The Drop-In Center is open Friday and Saturday nights from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and provides activities for kids, such as games, movies and crafts. On special occasions they also host pizza parties and costume parties. “The people of Maple Park came out in support of the Drop-In Center in the name of Rich Ferdinand, who was a long time Maple Park resident who recently lost his fight to cancer. “I want to thank the Rich Ferdinand Family, Dennis Lexa, Ray Lynch, and Tony Harrington for their hard work in hosting the fundraiser and their generous donation. I’m proud to serve this small community that comes together with big hearts.  I appreciate the residents of Maple Park that feel the Drop-In Center is a worthy cause. Thank you,” said Police Chief Tony Ayala.

The Drop-In Center was started under the previous Police Chief, Mike Acosta. The Drop-In Center was moved to a bigger space and remodeled under the current Police Chief Tony Ayala.

Mission statement of the Maple Park Police Department Youth Drop-In Center:  “The Maple Park Youth Drop-In Center is a place for youth to go to socially interact with their peers in a friendly, positive manner, rather than creating mischief in the community. Our program encourages positive interactions with the police and we also support local community events.”

Village President Kathy Curtis sends thanks to the businesses of Maple Park “County Line Custom, Bootleggers and Honest Automotive” for their contribution back to the community.
