Old Bridge thankful students

Old Bridge police officers Vincent Galgano, Detective D’Onofrio and officer Gabriella Ciacciarelli with Salk Middle School students who made a poster thanking the police department. 

OLD BRIDGE — Students from Jonas Salk Middle School were taking part in a school assignment about Acts of Kindness and were given a Good Deed Challenge.

The group chose the Old Bridge Police Department to show their appreciation by creating a poster thanking the officers for their service.

Students Abby Mahmoud, Madison Chiarello, Karley Hazel, Olivia Cusick, Kaitlyn Janks and Hailey Palmieri brought the department homemade baked goods and coffee on Sept. 30.

In gratitude for this kind gesture, Detective Patrick D’Onofrio gave the group a tour of Police Headquarters and answered questions about law enforcement.

“The Police Department was very grateful for this good deed and we were happy for the opportunity to interact with young people,” said D’Onofrio.
