It’s All for the Kids!
Cops and kids are a terrific combination. We’re honored to support the Junior Leadership Cape Coral program, sponsored by the Cape Coral Chamber of Commerce and the Cape Coral Mayors Scholarship Fund, as well as spearhead several other initiatives that benefit the children in our community. FOP Lodge 33 members recently donated the money needed for helmets for a newly launched football program at a local charter school.
We annually host back-to-school and Christmas shopping trips with groups of local children. Uniformed officers pick them up and accompany them on a tour of the police department, and treat them to a delicious breakfast and a shopping adventure. Sergeant Paul Blanchard, President of Cape Coral FOP Lodge 33, says, “Seeing the joy on the children’s faces is so rewarding and a feeling I can’t describe.”
Where We Live.
The enthusiasm Cape Coral FOP Lodge 33 members have for helping make our community better is evident everywhere. Our members volunteer thousands of hours of off-duty time to causes like youth soccer, raising money for scholarships and building awareness of public health issues like prostate cancer.
In fact, last November, participating police officers each contributed $15 towards the “Movember” prostate cancer awareness campaign totaling around $600. FOP Lodge 33 matched the total amount raised, bringing the overall contribution to over $1,200. That’s just one example of how we show that CAPE COPS CARE!
