Olympic Division Police Unity Tour “Goodwill Fundraiser” NA13055df

What:
One-day donation to drop off items to raise funds

When:
Saturday, April 6, 2013
9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Where:
LAPD Olympic Division Community Station
1130 South Vermont Avenue
Los Angeles, California

Who:
LAPD Officers

Why:
The primary purpose of the Police Unity Tour is to raise awareness about the police officers that have died in the line of duty. Their motto is, “We Ride For Those Who Died.” The secondary purpose is to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. Since its inception in 1997, the Police Unity Tour has raised over $10 million to support the Memorial.

Each rider must raise approximately $2500 dollars to participate in the tour. The first $1800 is paid to the Police Unity Tour. This money includes a $1000 donation to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and $800 to cover support services, ground transportation, overnight lodging, and food while they ride. The additional monies are needed to pay for airfare, uniforms, meals and additional costs that each rider is responsible for.

LAPD Olympic Division has partnered with Goodwill industries who have agreed to donate a certain amount of money to each of the riders for the donated items they collect. Basically the more they collect, the more money they raise.

You can clean out your closets and garage and support your LAPD Officers as they prepare to bicycle from New Jersey to Washington DC to honor those officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice. There will be a one day donation drive-thru at LAPD Olympic Community Station where you can drop off your items for Goodwill. You don’t even have to get out of your car!
