SEASON OF GIVING

Dear Secret Santa:

Hope you and [your wife] enjoyed yesterday’s event and survived riding along w/Officer Jeff & Sergeant Neil. They’re great guys and I was glad to hear that they were eager to volunteer.

They, along w/more officers than I can mention were totally energized by what you generosity produced. The resulting good karma is immeasurable, but I can assure you it had great impact.

The media coverage was extensive, but the positive feedback even more so. We’re requesting that the officers provide some stories about their experiences so they can be chronicled in our annual journal and social media.

Based on the calls I’ve received, the people I’ve talked with and the posts on the Cleveland Police Foundation’s Facebook page, the day was a huge success!!!

Without empirical data, I can assure that your generosity had a most positive impact in the community and the Division of Police, and energized both citizens and rank and file members of the Cleveland Division of Police alike!

Our sincere thanks for helping to make Cleveland’s Holiday Season that much brighter for its citizens in need and our officers; and helping to lift morale for the CPD … an added bonus!

On behalf of the Cleveland Police Foundation and all involved with this great event, I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Joyous Holiday Season.

Chas.


Dear Captain Sulzer:

I was thrilled to receive your generous gift card. It was so thoughtful of you to think of our family at Christmas time. My kids really appreciate the toys and the tickets to see the Monsters game; you can’t imagine all the joy you’ve brought to them.

I have been suffering financial difficulties these past three months due to my mother’s medical bills in my country and your generosity was a blessing to my family.

Thanks to the police officers D. Borders #1780, R. Rodriguez #1146 and M. Fore #883 for taking their time to deliver joy to my family.

Thank you once again for the gifts and your kind thoughts. They are most appreciated.

God bless you always!

Cleveland Police Foundation Annual Appeal

Dear Cleveland Police Foundation Supporter:

Community. Collaboration. Engagement.

These are the buzz words for strengthening police service throughout the USA. But, they are also words that describe the Cleveland Division of Police outreach initiatives.

The 5-year old Cleveland Police Foundation partners with our police officers to give back to the community. But more than that, together we build bridges, create opportunities for dialogue, and establish relationships. We are continuing a tradition that stretches back for 150 years.

The Cleveland Police Foundation is an alliance of business and civic leaders, individuals and organizations committed to the ideal that a dedicated, well-trained and modernly equipped police service leads to a safer community. Strengthening the bonds between citizens and police officers by supporting youth and community outreach events, engagement and police charitable endeavors is the cornerstone of its mission.

We invite you to review our Annual Appeal. Each sponsorship level carries specific benefits such as public recognition for support of our programs and mission, advertising opportunities, and other amenities.

We are asking you to join us by “Investing in a Safe Community” as a Cleveland Police Foundation Annual Sponsor. Together we can face the challenges, continue to assist our police officer in their efforts to provide exemplary service to the community and support their charitable outreach efforts.
