Dear friends,

Today is Giving Tuesday, a day set aside for people to donate to causes they are passionate about. People around Charlottesville are being impacted by our work, and you have the opportunity to partner with us to:

  • Build bridges in the community through Outreach Programs such as Cops 4 Kids Day, Ice Cream with a Cop, Charlottesville Night Out, Youth & Blue with City of Promise and Lighthouse Studio, Sin Barreras Spanish language classes, Pedal Power, Safe Halloween, and the Santa Van
  • Sponsor valuable training programs including training for the entire department as well as individual leadership training for officers
  • Help officers and their families buy homes in our community through our Officer Housing Grants Program
  • Make Grants to the department for many requests including supporting the K9 division, the Crisis Intervention Team, recruiting and retention efforts, and Holiday dinners
  • Show our appreciation to officers through programs like the Appreciation Dinner, Officer of the Month, Behind the Badge series, Academy Graduation Dinners, and National Police Week

And we have some exciting news about a matching donor today! Start 2 Finish Nutrition will be matching donations up to $500! You can easily donate by clicking the Donate button below, or donate through Facebook (who will also be matching donations).

"I really enjoyed hearing about everything the police do, and feel like both on a personal level and on a professional level it will help so much to understand their perspective. We are so lucky to have them. We come from all over the country over in this newsroom, and we know how good we have it with this police force. Thank you such much for treating us to an inside look at what they do!"
