Community Partners of the Month

CPF Community Partner of the Month - August 2022 - Anthony, Steve, and Ed of A. Ripepi & Sons Funeral Homes

Anthony, Steve, and Ed, plus K9 Ranger

The brothers from A. Ripepi & Sons Funeral Homes, Anthony, Steve, and Ed, have always been proud supporters of law enforcement in Northeast Ohio. Recently the Ripepi family generously provided five northeast Ohio Police Departments (Cleveland, Parma Heights, Euclid, Metro Health, and Brunswick) with K-9 police dogs and included the training with the donation. This was made possible through the Danny Ripepi Memorial Concert held recently.

Cleveland Police Department Sergeant Brian Allen, the Canine Unit Officer in Charge, said, “Not only did the Ripepis provide the City of Cleveland with a new canine but also they have provided our Canine Unit with K9 ballistic vests for each of our dogs in the past. The Ripepi family has always been the first to step up and provide their services to the entire City of Cleveland Division of Police family when needed.”

It is because of this generosity and caring for the law enforcement community that the Cleveland Police Foundation is proud to name Anthony, Steve, and Ed, representing A. Ripepi & Sons Funeral Homes, our Community Partner of the Month for August 2022.
