I had a meeting with Chief Stan Brown this morning. While I was at the station, he mentioned that the community has been really supportive lately, especially in light of recent events across the country. I asked him what Claremore could do to help, and he said the department could really use three coolers to keep in the shift supervisor vehicles. When it’s hot, it’s helpful for officers to have fast access to cold bottled water for those who need it.
Travis and I pondered on that for a few minutes, and we decided to reach out via social media to see if anyone would help us raise money to buy coolers. Imagine my delight when, within 60 seconds of a post on my personal facebook page, Mark Pixley of Pixley Lumber offered to donate three Pelican 45-qt. insulated coolers.
Travis and I borrowed a truck from Melton Sales, loaded up the loot from Pixley, and delivered the coolers to the police department. Chief Brown was a happy man!
The community is grateful to Claremore Police Department! Thanks for all you do!
