Easter Seals is the national charity of choice for the Fraternal Order of Police/Auxiliary/ and Associates. The California Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) has participated in this very worthwhile charity for the past twenty years in various ways. Initially, the California FOP established interest in this organization when it supplied off duty Police Officers and Police Explorers to provide security for the National Telethon held annually in Hollywood. Through the years, this effort has evolved into a greater participation from FOP members by donating both moneys and services for volleyball games, softball games and 24-hour relays throughout the State and now, annual Walk-a-Thons.
Currently, the California FOP remains actively involved in the support of Easter Seals by not only donating officer services but also by generating cash funds. More than 82 cents of every Easter Seal dollar goes to direct services and more than 90% of contributed income is retained in the area where it is raised. During the years of 1996 and 1997, the California State FOP generated $20,500 in cash and services, the largest amount from the western states. The FOP in California continues to donate annually to the Easter Seals Program.
We successfully spread ourselves out very thin and the Easter Seals Walk/Run went off without any major issues. Read More
