Each year, the Whooley Foundation gathers gifts to make sure that no child in Watertown goes without a present during the holidays.
The Watertown Police Department sent out the following announcement:
The Whooley Foundation is a non-profit organization that was founded in the memory of John “Sonny” Whooley a Watertown Police Officer, resident, father and husband. He loved the community and served it for over 30 years as a Watertown Police Sergeant. He always had a special place in his heart for those less fortunate than himself. He would always strive to make others just a little happier during the holidays.
Our mission is to ensure that no child in our community goes without the joy of opening a present during the holidays. The expectations of children during the holiday season are high and one of the greatest joys in life is watching a child open a gift.
We are Police Officers, Firefighters, Dispatchers, DPW workers and other dedicated members of our community. We give all donations back to our community, local food shelters and other necessary places.
We have Gift drop off at the following locations:
- Police Station
- Fire Stations
- Porcini’s Restaurant
- Strip T’s
