Police give money to minister for poor

TOMS RIVER: Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 10 has donated $200 to Steve Brigham of Lakewood Outreach Ministry Church, founder and minister of the homeless encampment known as Tent City.

Each month the lodge donates to charities, including Ocean of Love, a childhood-cancer support group based in Toms River; Deborah Heart and Lung Center; the Special Olympics; and other local and national groups, Downey said.
The group meets 7 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month at 1791 N. Bay Avenue. For more information call 732-255-7300
