Remaining funds from our Community Garden Project were donated this afternoon to the Lakeland Police Department to be used toward funding an additional K-9.
See more pictures from the presentation in our PHOTO GALLERY at the bottom of the HOME page.
In addition to the personal thanks received, Lakeland Police posted the following note of thanks on their Facebook page.
Thank you Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church for the Puppy Love!
Chief Garcia, K-9 Officer Ryan Back and K-9 Smoke, and Lieutenant Eric Harper were humbled and grateful to receive a very generous donation of $3,550 today from members of Grace Lutheran Church. Along with the donation, members also had treat bags for our K-9 Officers, both two and four-legged! The donation will be put to good use soon, as we will be seeking new dogs for the unit due to recent retirements and promotions.
We say it over and over annnnnd over.... OUR COMMUNITY ROCKS!!
