Cleveland Police District 3 and CPF Gift Fishing Rods to Local Kids

In a heartwarming initiative, officers from Cleveland Police District 3 have been presenting neighborhood kids with brand new fishing rods, spreading smiles and encouraging outdoor activities. This act of generosity was made possible thanks to the Cleveland Police Foundation and Captain Gary Norman of Dog Pound Charters who donated the fishing rods.

Two of the lucky recipients of these fishing rods were Ava and Benson, who received their gifts from Officers Harlan and Tooley, respectively. The Cleveland Police Foundation and District 3 are keen on creating positive experiences and fostering strong relationships within the community. This thoughtful gesture is just one of the ways they are achieving this. Good luck with the fishing, Ava and Benson!
