The Abbotsford Police Foundation (APF) presents its third annual Crime is Toast: Breakfast with the Chief fundraising event on Wednesday, Oct. 25.
The event runs from 7 to 9:30 a.m. at Tradex and raises money in support of the Abbotsford Police Department’s community programs.
APD Chief Bob Rich will be on hand.
This year’s goal is $50,000, which will support four projects:
n the APD City Basketball Tournament to promote positive choices for youth through basketball;
n the Abbotsford Police Camp, a week-long camp for kids who interact with officers and learn new skills;
n Youth Making Positive Choices, which encourages and empowers youth to make good life choices; and
n Project Band-Aid, in which uniformed officers visit kids in hospital and leave with a toy dog, Hector the Protector.
Established in 2005, APF is a charitable organization that funds APD community programs not covered by its operating budget.
The APD cannot directly receive financial contributions, but the APF is a trusted, practical way for the community to help support the work of Abbotsford Police.
