DUNWOODY, Ga. — The Rotary Club of Dunwoody recently donated $11,500 to the Dunwoody Police Foundation, requesting that funds be earmarked to help defray the cost of launching a K-9 unit in the Dunwoody Police Department.
“Our members wish to salute all who have served with distinction in the police department in our city’s first decade, and we wish to do our part to invest in continued excellence in policing in the Dunwoody community,” Rotary Club President Cathie Brumfield said. “Helping to launch the department’s K-9 unit is one way to demonstrate that support.”
The gift, comprised of funds from the Dunwoody Rotary Charitable Fund and individual donations from Rotarians, was made as a restricted gift to the Dunwoody Police Foundation through its Founders’ Campaign 2020.
“We are thrilled to hear about Rotary’s generous support,” Police Foundation President Rick Holland said. “This donation gives the Police Foundation a running start toward its goal of raising $50,000 through its Founders’ Campaign 2020.”
The principal purposes of the nonprofit are to provide aid to police personnel during emergencies, provide funding for specialized training and purchase of special equipment and support community partnerships through education and events.
