From the Orleans Police Department:

Last Wednesday members of the Orleans Police Department along with law enforcement throughout Cape Cod participated in the annual Massachusetts Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. The Cape Cod torch run leg is an awareness and fundraising campaign for the Special Olympics Massachusetts to help benefit the athletes, teams, and coaches.

The Orleans Police Department and the students at Nauset Regional Middle School held their first coin drive fundraiser for the Special Olympics. The idea of a coin drive was nice but the students thought otherwise and turned it into a dollar drive! In total the Orleans Police Department and the students were able to raise over $350! Now parents know where their kid's lunch money went! Thank you to the students, school staff and teachers for supporting a great organization. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
