WOODSTOCK – The Woodstock Police Department D.A.R.E. program and Trax Depot Café will team up from 5:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 12 to raise funds for the D.A.R.E. and G.R.E.A.T. programs.

A portion of all sales at Trax Depot Café, 90 Church St., Woodstock, will go to the Woodstock District 200 Drug Abuse Resistance Education and Gang Resistance Education And Training programs.

These programs are a collaboration of the city of Woodstock, School District 200 and the Woodstock Police Department. They use specially trained Woodstock police officers to teach both programs in fifth and seventh grades in District 200.

These programs rely solely on fundraising efforts.
