NPD Donates to Oaken Acres
The Naperville Police Department recently presented a check for $1,175 to Oaken Acres Wildlife Center. The center was chosen for their role in an incident in May 2018 when a car struck a pregnant deer. Though the doe died shortly after, NPD Officer Matt Minuth responded to the scene and was able to save the life of the fawn. The baby deer was then taken to Oaken Acres, who cared for the animal. The money was raised by the department’s communications team employees for the chance to “dress down” at work twice a month.
