Back by popular demand, the Vancouver Police Foundation has reintroduced its Kops’ Shades for Kids campaign this summer.
With the purchase of VPD Aviator Sunglasses, you can provide funding for important community outreach programs that are primarily focused on inner-city kids and at-risk youth. By leading and organizing ongoing activities with vulnerable youth, VPF can help them gain skills and self-confidence for a brighter future.
The sunglasses cost $20 each and are available at all Vancouver London Drugs locations, Community Policing Centres and on the Vancouver Police Foundation website.
With your purchase, you also become a member of the Vancouver Police Foundation.
The Vancouver Police Foundation fosters partnerships with the public to enhance VPD’s capacity to save lives, prevent crime and build safer communities. The Foundation affects positive community change through the following areas of support: Youth-at-Risk, Mental Health & Addictions, Community Outreach and Engagement, and Technology and Special Equipment. The programs funded are not included in the annual operating budget of the VPD. Learn more about the Foundation here.
