October Community Partners of the Month: Chas Schramek

The Cleveland Police Foundation proudly announces that the recipients of our Community Partner of the Month Award for October 2019 is Chas Shramek!

October 2019 CPOM

Chas Shramek, owner of Proforma Connected, is a tremendous supporter of the Cops for Kids Program!

Chas was searching for a charity to support that would help Cleveland Police Officers as they worked in the community.  He reached out to his childhood friend, Sergeant Brian Middaugh.  The sergeant suggested Cops for Kids.

The financial support that Chas provides for Cops for Kids allows CPD officers many opportunities for community involvement.  The officers create relationships with the children of Cleveland through random acts of giving or through Christmas events and community programs.

Chas Shramek and Jacilyn, his wife, are true examples of giving. They understand the importance of forging a better relationship between the police and the community they serve.  Thank you Chas… we here at the CPD and the Cleveland Police Foundation appreciate you more than you know!

It is because of this dedication to making the community a better place to live that the Cleveland Police Foundation is honored to name Chas Shramek as its Community Partner of the Month for October 2019.
