Celebrating Fatherhood & Literacy

The Cleveland Police Foundation, Community Policing, and Michael McDonald from Cleveland Community Relations teamed up with the Urban Kutz Barbershop for a special Father’s Day Read. This was an event that celebrated fatherhood and literacy, two important aspects of a strong community!! The cops, kids, and fathers talked about safety, the importance of literacy, and those important topics that always surround a working barber shop. Everyone was treated to Jack Frost Donuts, a police gift bag with coloring book, crayons, and a stuffed animal, a book, and last but not least Honey Hut Ice Cream courtesy of Bruce Page!! Thank you to all the fathers, children, police officers, and supporters of this event. A big thanks to Lamont Bell from Urban Kutz and WKYC Channel 3-Cleveland‘s Margaret Bernstein for your support of literacy in Cleveland!!
