Overbrook Overlook: Police department to present community safety meetings

Overbrook Police Chief Hollingsworth announced the police department will present a variety of safety events, once per month, beginning in April. Event dates will be announced. Programs will include preventing scams, self defense strategies, human trafficking, first aid/CPR, and prescription drug abuse. There is no cost to attend these events, and everyone is welcome.

Overbrook Community Chest Committee reports that the goal set for the 2021-2022 Community Chest Drive has been reached and exceeded due to the generosity of the community. With a goal of $8,500, the committee raised approximately $15,500. The final proceeds will be allocated to the 16 organizations chosen by the committee. Each organization will receive the amount donated to them as specified by the donors plus a percentage of the non-designated donations received. The success of this campaign shows the willingness of the residents of the Overbrook area to support their home community and projects. The Overbrook Community Chest Committee would like to thank everyone who helped make this year’s drive a success.
