Provide Critical Resources
COVID-19 is the most pressing problem we have faced in generations. For our Police Officers the role is the same–to protect and serve our residents but their responsibilities now include having to be concerned with a new infectious disease.
Every day our officers are on the frontline working to keep the city safe. We owe it to them to ensure they have the protection necessary for an ongoing response, long-term.
Please consider donating to the COVID-19 Response Fund to help us address the evolving needs for PPE, essential supplies, equipment, and training presented by this crisis.
Support Our Initiatives
We continue to monitor information around COVID-19, including guidelines from federal, state, and local authorities. Given the guidelines for mass gatherings, we decided to cancel all of our events scheduled through August. This included the Retired K9 Celebration in April, Hero Brunch in May and Back the Blue fundraiser in August. This was not an easy decision to make, but we believe it was in the best interest of both our cherished supporters and the community at large. Based upon current guidelines and expectations we are unsure if our Breakfast with the Chief fundraiser will take place in November.
The income lost from these three events and the uncertainty of COVID-19 this year will significantly impact the capacity of our Foundation to provide funding to the police department in 2020 and presumably be a factor into the foreseeable future.
Please consider making a contribution to help us ensure that Boca Raton remains a safe city. Your gift will enhance the department’s ability to acquire the most up-to-date equipment, state-of-the art technology and training and fund community outreach programs to improve public safety, impact officer readiness, and enhance our quality of life.
