10th Annual Cops 4 Kids Day a success

May 5, 2018

Cops 4 Kids Day 2018 at the Boys & Girls Club was another huge success! Hundred of kids and dozens of police officers spent a fun time together on May 4th, 4-6pm.

They enjoyed games, food, and prizes galore. Officers felt supported by the community they serve, and kids and parents enjoyed getting to know the men and women behind the badges.

Many amazing volunteers served selflessly in the heat to organize t-shirts, set up tables and tents, direct traffic flow, serve food, refill water guns, help with the bounce mazes, put on tattoos, help with the ice cream truck, take pictures, pick up trash (so much trash!), and much more - all with smiles on their faces! 

We appreciate their efforts and could not host this event without them. We are also grateful to the Boys & Girls Club staff for partnering with us, hosting us, and supporting our efforts. We are already looking forward to next year!

CPD Officer Perspective

I have been a Police Officer for a long time. I have seen both joyful and horrific times thru the years; some dark days & rainy nights I have even asked myself if it was worth it, and did anybody really care? Thanks to the Foundation, I know someone does. Not just funding equipment or training or the many other things that have been done, but by letting us see all of you among us as we work. The outpouring of support from the community itself has demonstrated to us that there are still SO MANY good people in this broken world.
