     On December 1, 2014, the Walmart Foundation awarded a grant to the Cleveland Police Foundation in support of the Cleveland Cops For Kids program (CFK). The $2,000.00 grant will be used by CFK to strengthen the relationship between the police and children in the community. The goal is to build relationships by creating trust and understanding with kids in order to improve communication, help kids in need or who are victims of crime, encourage good decision-making, and reward good deeds.
      On behalf of the Cleveland Cops For Kids program, we extend our sincere thanks to the Walmart Foundation for investing in a safe community.
