More and more businesses and groups are coming forward to support the men and women who patrol the city streets 24 hours a day / 7 days a week to keep Milton families safe.
Under the 'Feed The Cops' Program initiated by Accessmilton.com this past year, participating businesses to date include Target, Philly Pretzel Factory, RBC Bank of Milton,Panera Bread, and Papa John's Pizza.
Neeta Renner, Karen Bell, and Carrie Schwimmer of RBC Bank of Milton went beyond the call of duty in their support. Not only have they adopted the third thursday evening of each month as their night to 'Feed The Cops', but they have also brought along others to join in! The Papa John's Pizza located in the Kroger shopping center on Highway 9 right across the border in Alpharetta donated a pizza and one of Milton's newest businesses, Panera Bread, provided the desert.
After some prep time at RBC Bank, Banking Center Manager Carrie
Schwimmer and her staff ventured over to the Milton Police
Department at City Hall with food in tow this past Thursday.
Commented Schwimmer, " RBC Bank is committed to the community of Milton. We wanted to take this opportunity to thank the police officers for all of their hard work." In addition, Mrs. Schwimmer went on to state how helpful the Milton Police were regarding some recent issues with their alarm system.
Anthony Cueller of Papa John’s Pizza agreed, “ We are proud to support the Milton Police in their efforts to keep citizens safe. To provide a Papa Johns Pizza pales in comparison to the lives they save every day.”
“We are happy to be a part of the community and support the local police, “ Taree Good of Panera Bread of Milton continued.
It is due to generosity like that referenced above that have helped to insure the success of the 'Feed The Cops' Program.
Another added bonus is that people who live, work, and play in Milton are given the opportunity to meet the wonderful Milton Police Department staff in a relaxed atmosphere. If an emergency were to come your way, in knowing some of these heroes prior can be a great benefit.
Once all sixty time slots are filled for the Milton Police, a new program will begin called 'Feed The Firemen' with the same goal in mind - getting food in front of these heroes before they begin their long and dangerous shifts of keeping Milton families safe.
