FANWOOD, NJ — The Fanwood police department announced that it has received a $4,100 donation from Dr. César DePaço, Founder and CEO of Summit Nutritionals International.

The donation will allow the Fanwood Police Department to make crucial purchases immediately.  The donation will pay for two new “Police Bicycles”, one of which will be an E-Bike.

This is Dr. DePaço’s 2nd donation to the Fanwood Police Department, having donated $10,000 in June 2022 for the purchase of four AEDs (Automated external defibrillators) for patrol units and a new “Outer Vest” Carriers for every Fanwood Police Officer.


“What Dr. DePaço and his wife Deanna continue to do for the Law Enforcement Community is truly ‘Life Saving work.’ Their generosity is second to none,” said Fanwood police director Michael Bramhall. “In very difficult times it is a great comfort to know that people like Dr. DePaço and his wife, Deanna, are wholeheartedly supporting the Law Enforcement Community. The Borough of Fanwood is forever grateful.”


Dr. DePaço and his wife Deanna Padovani-DePaço have been assisting police departments for over 10 years with their generous philanthropy.
