More than $500 was raised at the first Freezin’ for a Reason fundraiser in North Judson.
During her report at Monday night’s meeting, Town Marshal Kelly Fisher thanked the members of the fire department and town council as well as everyone else who participated by jumping into the chilly water. She said a total of $505 was raised during the event.
That money will be used to purchase hats, gloves and boots for children in need. Marshal Fisher said she’s coordinating with the same store they utilize for Shop with Cop to buy the winter apparel since they always provide a good discount.
After all the items are obtained, a distribution date will be set and then local families can come to pick up the clothing from the Police Department.
Marshal Fisher said that the Department plans to hold an event like this each year in order to raise funds for various needs within the community.
