NEMLEC Foundation Receives $25,000 Donation from Walmart at State House Event
DRACUT — The NEMLEC Police Foundation, Inc. is pleased to announce that it received a $25,000 check from Walmart at the State House yesterday.
During the event, which is part of Walmart’s annual State House Day, Chris Buchanan, Director of Public Affairs and Government Relations for Walmart, recognized the NEMLEC Foundation and presented members with a $25,000 check.
The donation, which Walmart pledged during NEMLEC’s annual golf tournament, will be used to further NEMLEC’s training events for its member police and sheriff departments.
“Thank you to Walmart for this is a great donation,” said Belmont Chief Richard McLaughlin, President of the NEMLEC Foundation. “A big part of what NEMLEC does is support our communities and member police departments. This money helps us provide training to our officers and we wouldn’t be able to do what we do without the help from Walmart.”
