Give Back at Ruby Tuesday on Thursday
Aug. 14, 2013 @ 10:39 AM

On Thursday, Thomasville Police Department officers will be present  at Ruby Tuesday to benefit the city’s Crime Stoppers program.

Through Ruby Tuesday’s Give Back Program, 20 percent of all purchases made during the lunch and dinner hours of Aug. 15, will be donated to  Crime Stoppers. Officers and volunteers with Crime Stoppers will hand out flyers. You must present the flyer to your server to participate in the fundraising effort.

Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement — fear and apathy. Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information leads to an arrest or grand jury indictment of a criminal or wanted person. Crime Stoppers relies on citizen volunteers and tax deductible contributions from the public in order to operate the administration of the program.

“Crime Stoppers relies on donations and fundraisers to assist our Thomasville Police Department in paying rewards to anonymous callers to make our community safer,” said Thomasville Crime Stoppers Board Chairman Judy Younts. “Thomasville Police will be present during lunch and dinner at Ruby Tuesday on this Give Back day, so it will be a great opportunity to come out and let them know in person how much you appreciate them.”

“A safer city means more visitors, more residents and more business, resulting in more jobs and increased revenues,” said Capt. Darren Smith. “Thomasville Crime Stoppers gets to the core of crime prevention and public safety by identifying the people committing crimes and helping law enforcement get them off the streets.”
