6th grader named citizen of month for raising funds for K-9 bullet proof vest

Jackson Davis is a 6th grader at Bailey School. He was devastated after he read a story about a brave Police K-9 that was shot in the line of duty. The dog died. Jackson spent the entire day thinking about ways that this devastation could be prevented. He came up with an idea: protect a paw. Buy a K-9 a bulletproof vest.
Jackson spoke to his principal- Marge Jones - and they called Detective Papovitch from the Greenburgh Police K 9 unit. Jackson began a fundraising initiative which has raised hundreds of dollars for a bulletproof vest.
The Town Board will be honoring Jackson at our next Town Board meeting - this coming Wednesday at 7:15 PM at Town Hall. Jackson will also be named citizen of the month. His mom, Dana Davis, was citizen of the month in 1999. She is an advocate for the disabled and is currently a member of the Parks & Recreation Advisory Board. This is the first mother/son citizen of the month team in Greenburgh history!

God bless Jackson Davis. What a kind hearted, sympathetic 6th Grader he is. Good to know that he is being encouraged in taking action to help. He and his peers, hopefully, will move our Town and Country forward in the future.
