Tri-town students, police fill three cruisers

Dec 14, 2016

Old Rochester Regional National Honor Society students teamed up with the Marion, Mattapoisett and Rochester Police Departments for a good cause this holiday season.

On Wednesday morning, students and police officers collected toy donations to support Toys for Tots, filling three police cruisers.

The cruisers sat in the parking lot and parents, teachers and other donators were able drop off any gifts they had.

The ORR Honor Society has done this event for the past four years, but this is the group's first time working with the police, teacher Sarabeth Morell said.

“[Mattapoisett officer] Matt McGraw is the student resource officer here, and decided he wanted to help,” Morell said. “He was able to help get the police departments on board.”

Collections will continue through Dec. 16 at the school during business hours.
