It may be February but the holidays were top of mind at Tuesday’s Haverhill City Council meeting.  Specifically, it was on a program started by the police department three years ago, called the Holiday Gift Card Give-Away.

This program provides gift cards for families that could use some help over the holidays. Deputy Police Chief Anthony Haugh says to-date more than 500 families have received these gift cards due, in no small part, to the generosity of two institutions: Trinity Ambulance and Haverhill Bank.

“When the chief approaches them with this, they just say ‘What do you need?’ There are no questions asked other than that.  And two of those individuals are here tonight, Thomas Mortimer from Haverhill Bank and John Chemaly from Trinity Ambulance,” Haugh said.

The two men were presented with a Community Service Award from the Haverhill Police Department.
