The Town of Hancock donated $500 to Children’s Village to support the free life-safety education program Children’s Village provides to all second-grade students in Washington County each school year. Funds were generated from speed- camera revenue. Hancock was the first town to install the cameras.
T.J. Buskirk, chief of police for the Town of Hancock, presented the check to Rochelle Morrell, director of Children’s Village.
“The Town of Hancock and the Hancock Police Department are committed to Children’s Village and its successful safety program. We are pleased to be able to support child safety in our community with this gift,” Buskirk said.
“The Hancock Police Department has long partnered with Children’s Village, providing police instructors to teach Hancock students during their personal safety day classes at the village. We are grateful for this ongoing support and for the town’s recent gift,” Morrell said.
Children’s Village is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing free life-safety education to county children. More than 50,000 students have visited Children’s Village to learn safe living skills since the facility on Mount Aetna Road opened in 1990.
