A letter from Chief Johnnie Torres:

Citizens and friends of Stockbridge,

The holiday season is upon us once again, and as in previous years I want to highlight a wonderful and much-needed program that benefits our Stockbridge senior citizens.

Tri-County TRIAD is a partnership among Law Enforcement Agencies, Fire Personnel, Senior Citizens (60+) and Community Members that promotes elder quality of life through advocacy, assistance, education and training. Last year six seniors in Stockbridge took advantage of this program, but I know there are others who could benefit from the program as well. That is why I am asking for your help.

The 2016 Tri-County TRIAD “No Senior without Christmas” campaign is in full swing and needs your support. Below are this year’s referral form and letter. If you know of someone who needs this service or you just want to donate to this worthy cause, please contact the TRIAD. (See forms for details.)

No community should forget its seniors but often that is just what happens due to the hustle and bustle of life. I always enjoy delivering these packages to our seniors and visiting with them, even if just for a few minutes, because I value them as community treasures. Ask anyone involved in similar programs, and they will tell you how much the seniors appreciate the fact that they are not forgotten by their community, and also how much their spirit is lifted when they see the look of appreciation on the senior faces. This is certainly true for me.

Please consider donating or referring someone for this program.
