Cypress Police Foundation Plush K-9 Heroes available as a thank-you gift for a donation of at least $50. Come see them on May 6 at Cypress Civic Center.
Look for the Cypress Police Foundation booth at the Cypress Police Department’s open house on May 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m at the Cypress Civic Center.
Board members of the Foundation manning the booth will be talking about its mission in support of the Cypress Police Department, and asking for your donations. (As a member of the Board, I will be in the booth most of the day. From time to time I will be out and about taking photos, too.)
All donations, from the smallest to the largest, will be gratefully accepted. The Foundation is able to accept donations in the forms of cash, checks, or credit cards.
While we won’t be selling anything, we will have thank-you gifts for those willing and able to make a donation of at least fifty dollars — a choice of either a black (like Sem) or black-and-tan (like Pasko) K-9 plush dog.
Each of the K-9 hero plush dogs rocks a collar with a dog tag bearing the logo of the Cypress Police Foundation. Underscoring the danger in the selfless duty of their real-life counterparts, each plush hero also rocks a ballistic vest bearing the shoulder patch of the Cypress Police Department.
The plush puppies are a-l-m-o-s-t as cool as our real live K-9 officers, Sem and Pasko — who should be on hand at the open house to meet the public and perform a live demonstration of how they take down bad guys. (The Cypress Police Foundation approved a grant to pay the cost of purchasing Pasko. The City of Cypress paid for Sem.)
If you cannot attend the open house on May 6, the plush K-9 pups are available through the Cypress Police Foundation as a thank you gift for a donation of at least $50.
