Nanticoke Health Services is collecting “thank you” cards from community members for local police officers, as part of Thank a Police Officer Day on Sept. 16.

Thank a Police Officer Day was created in 2012 by the Whole Truth Project and is observed nationally as an opportunity for the community to show appreciation for law enforcement. Delmarva Supports Law Enforcement is a group that coordinates the adoption of local police departments by individuals and businesses.

Nanticoke is collecting cards for the Blades, Bridgeville, Delmar, Federalsburg, Georgetown, Laurel, Rehoboth and Seaford police departments and Delaware State Police Troop 5 in Bridgeville and Troop 4 in Georgetown.

Cards will be collected from Sept. 1 to Sept. 13 at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, 801 Middleford Road, Seaford; Nanticoke Cancer Care Center, 701 Middleford Road, Seaford; Seaford Health Pavilion, 100 Rawlins Drive; Laurel Immediate Care, 30549 Sussex Highway; and Georgetown Immediate Care, 503 W.
