As you may have heard, one of our team members, Officer Orlando Maynard, suffered the devastating loss of his son yesterday. While the investigation is ongoing and Chief Blackwelder has addressed the required legalities of the situation, we at the Town express our deepest condolences to the Maynard family and hold them in our prayers.
For anyone interested in assisting the family during this challenging time, one effort that we are aware of is a fund being sponsored by the Elon Community Church called the Elon Police Care Fund. A link to the fund can be found on their website at www.eloncommunitychurch.org under online giving/Elon Police Care Fund. If you do not have access to the internet, please call Pastor Randy Orwig at 336.584.0391 for information on how to donate in person.
