December 2020 Community Partner of the Month: Evelyn Badeas

The Cleveland Police Foundation proudly announces that the recipient of our Community Partner of the Month Award for December 2020 is Evelyn Badeas.

December 2020 CPOM

Evelyn Badeas has been supporting the events of the Cleveland Police Foundation for the last six years!

Ms. Badeas has been extremely generous with her time and money in helping the CPF help those in need in our community. Evelyn sells tickets to CPF fundraisers and assists with the set-up of the Kids Christmas parties for struggling families. Throughout the year, she shops for closeout deals and sales, spending hundreds of dollars of her own money to purchase toys and children’s clothing. These are donated to the CPF Christmas events and the annual Providence House Baby Shower.

Retired CPD Captain Keith Sulzer says, “Evelyn is incredibly generous and is always looking for opportunities to help CPF and CPD with our giving events. What’s even more special is she brings along her children to help, making her presence even more impactful and being a wonderful example to her kids on what it is to give back to your community!!”

It is because of her generosity and dedication to her community that the Cleveland Police Foundation is honored to name Evelyn Badeas as its Community Partner of the Month for December 2020.
