Fifth District Police Sunshine Fund
Usually at this time of year, concentration is placed on children, toys and food pantries, all of which are important at holiday time or any time of year for that matter.
This year, as in 2011, our cause is somewhat different. We will again be donating to the Fifth District Police Sunshine Fund. The Sunshine Fund is used by Police District 5 to sponsor community events such as ice cream socials, the annual Halloween party, family movie nights and many other community events. The fund is also used for purchasing flowers for the families of officers who have lost loved ones (parents). We have again requested that the donation be earmarked specifically for events in the Collinwood area. CNVDC will accept any and all donations for this cause between now and the end of the year, and as usual, we will match whatever the amount is donated to us.
We look forward to matching a huge amount, so we can contribute to this outstanding cause that the Fifth District Police have been utilizing for over 15 years now. Last year we were able to give the Fifth District Sunshine Fund over $1,400 and we are hoping to top that amount this year. It is just another way for the Police to reach out to the community and let them know that Police officers are real people and not to be feared when a criminal issue is not at stake.
Please forward any and all donations for the Sunshine Fund to CNVDC, 15614 St. Clair, Cleveland Ohio, 44110. We will let you know in the next newsletter the amount that was presented to the Sunshine Fund. HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL.
