The Mt Arlington Police Department, and the Mt Arlington Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 78 would like to thank Kuiken Brothers Building Materials for their generous donation of all the lumber needed for the construction of a ramp at Sgt James Distasio's residence.

We would also like to thank local builder Robert O'Donnell for the donation of his time, effort and amazing craftsmanship to build this ramp for James. He did so unsolicited with the assistance of Roxbury Sgt Steve Curtiss. These kind gestures will go a long way in assisting Sgt Distasio on his road to a full recovery. It is great to see members and businesses within the community come together to support those in need. Their support at this time is greatly appreciated and will not be forgotten.
