Salisbury Maryland Police Department Gives Out Expired Cookies, Trick Or Treat!
On Monday night the Salisbury Police Department was giving away an entire box of expired Girl Scout cookies to every child at the Trunk or Treat event in Salisbury. One has to wonder what the Health Department thinks of such a thing.
For years Salisbury News would get calls asking if we'd promote certain events where someone had cancer and an organization would be selling 300 tickets for $10.00 each for a chicken dinner, or whatever. Rather then advertising the event, we would purchase all 300 tickets and ask that they box up each meal. We would then go to the location the day of the event and pick up all the meals and deliver them to the homeless and or people in need. So we'd kill two birds with one stone and all of this was done with the funds we raise from our advertisers.
The next thing we knew, every non profit was confronted by the Health Department demanding they never do this again with Salisbury News, this is the honest to God truth. The Health Department was confronted by then Mayor Jim Ireton and Police Chief Barbara Duncan. Karma is a bitch now, isn't it Chief.
Publishers Notes: I want to clarify, the Health Department was not present at the "Trunk or Treat" event.
