Giving School Supplies on the West Side

The Cleveland Police Foundation was honored to partner up with Cleveland Police officers from the First District in a giveaway held for children who needed materials to ensure their academic achievement!

There were plenty of smiles and appreciation from the parents and kids receiving the supplies however, some of the biggest smiles were from the officers that participated!

Besides the Cleveland Police Foundation, contributors included Amazon, Target, Marc’s, the Cleveland Police Patrolman’s Association, Feet Geeks, Hertz, DJ- Coco 2, Lisa Fox, Cleveland Councilmen Charles Slife and Brian Kazy, and the CPF’s Executive Director Rick DeChant.

A big thank you goes out to the First District Community Engagement Officers, Juan DeJesus and Kerry Novak-Adams for organizing this event.

Thanks to all and be proud for your participation in making this event a success!
