Fundraising confusion cleared up in Sandwich
SANDWICH – The Sandwich Police Department reports that on Tuesday, the Vice President of the Sandwich Little League contacted Sandwich Police about possible fraudulent activity. It was reported to the police that a company going by the name of PM Sports, was soliciting donations from residents of Sandwich for the Sandwich Little League. The Vice President informed police that the Sandwich Little League conducts its own fundraising efforts without the use of a company.
Officer Michael Wood contacted PM Sports and spoke to a representative involved with Product Services. As it turns out, the company is legitimately soliciting donations for the Sandwich Babe Ruth League, not the Sandwich Little League. Officer Wood’s investigation determined that there was a miscommunication from PM Sports about which league they were soliciting donations for. Officer Wood was able to confirm that PM Sports is a legitimate company and that no crimes have been committed.
Sandwich residents should be aware that any commercial entity which is raising money for a non-profit organization that appears at their home should have a Town of Sandwich door-to-door soliciting permit with an identification card issued by the police department.
At this time, PM Sports does not have a permit to solicit door-to-door for Sandwich Babe Ruth or any other organization.
