Branson Police Facilitate Large Toaster Oven Donation

The Branson Police Department helped to facilitate a large donation of toaster ovens and other products to local charities. Police helped deliver 52 toaster ovens and about 100 bottles of Cutter/Repel products to Christian Action Ministries (CAM), The Women’s Crisis Center and the Salvation Army. That’s about $1,800 worth of product. The items were donated by Spectrum Brands, which is a distribution and manufacturing company based in Bentonville, Arkansas.


Assistant Police Chief Eric Schmitt met a Spectrum Brands worker and told him about Branson’s many charities who were in need. It wasn’t long after that conversation, Spectrum Brands was on board with the donation.


“This was such a neat experience, from the company who didn’t hesitate to help our city to seeing the reaction from the charities when we dropped off the donation. The charities were very thankful and were able to put those toaster ovens to use right away,” said Schmitt.


Ten of the toaster ovens went to CAM.


“Sometimes we have folks come to us who have nothing. They are starting from scratch. If you have nothing, it’s the little things that matter. Something we take for granted, like being able to cook, means so much for people who are going without,” said CAM Executive Director, Elizabeth Hughes.
