Massachusetts State Police

As part of our ongoing support for veterans, local police departments from the Commonwealth’s 351 cities and towns, state police barracks and sheriff’s departments will participate in a special convoy tomorrow, Tuesday, December 8, 2020. They will travel to Gillette Stadium to pick up 4,000 “Coats4Vets Buckets” for distribution in their local communities. These buckets will provide for the veterans’ material needs as well as create opportunities for law enforcement to connect and thank them for their service.

Coats4Vets, an annual initiative of the Massachusetts Military Support Foundation (MMSF), keeps our veterans safe in the unforgiving winter weather. This year, in light of the pandemic, the buckets will include coats, masks, hand sanitizer and snacks. This year, sponsors and donors include Massachusetts State Police, Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association, New England Patriots Foundation, Ocean State Job Lot, and Home Depot.
