Cypress Police Foundation Takes Part in the 2015 Cypress Community Festival

The Cypress Police Foundation (CPF), a nonprofit public benefit corporation established to support innovative programs, projects, and activities of the Cypress Police Department, manned a booth at the Cypress Community Festival on Saturday, July 25, 2015 to provide information to the public about the Foundation's mission.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth to say hello, to ask about the Cypress Police K-9 demonstration, and to make a cash donation to the Cypress Police Foundation and its mission in support of the Cypress Police Department.

Since its inception the CPF has successfully raised and awarded over $40,000.00 to the Cypress Police Department in the form of grants for various programs. More information on the funded grants and programs can be found at www.cypresspf.org.

The money raised by the Foundation comes from donations by Cypress individuals and corporate citizens with 98% going directly into the funded projects and programs.

One such project is Police K-9 Pasko, who took part with his handler in this year’s Cypress Community Festival Cypress Police Department K-9 Demonstration. Also on hand was Police K-9 Sem, shown in a photo above taking down a "bad guy" during that demonstration.

(Note that K-9 Sem is wearing a muzzle in order to ensure the safety of the Cypress Police Officer playing "bad guy." The photo is by Katie Wiedel and is used courtesy of Orange County Breeze.)
 
CPF-handout-Pasko-front
Highly popular at the Cypress Police Foundation booth this year was a card bearing a photo of K-9 Pasko on one side with a description of the Cypress Police Foundation on the other side.
 
The Cypress Police Foundation booth was part of the Public Safety Island on the west side of Oak Knoll Park. The Park served as the official Cypress Community Festival Grounds. We were near the entrance to the children's ride area and across from the Cypress Police Department's cool CSI display. Not far north of us was a static display from the Orange County Fire Authority. Just to our right, the Cypress Police were giving away nifty fold-up windshield screens to keep the sun off your dashboard.
 
The Cypress Police Foundation would like to thank Bandai for its donation of action figure toys that enabled us to delight and amaze booth visitors that, yes, they could take one.

Successful Launch of the Cypress Police Foundation Booth at the Cypress Community Festival

The Cypress Police Foundation was incorporated in August 2010.  It is a 501(c) (3) non-profit public benefit corporation established to raise funds to support innovative programs, projects, and activities of the Cypress Police Department that improve public safety, decrease crime and make Cypress a safe place to live, work and visit.

In an effort to give greater visibility to the Foundation and its mission, the board decided to have a booth at the Cypress Festival held Saturday, July 26, 2014. The Cypress Festival is held every year at the Oak Knoll Park here in Cypress and about 30,000 people visit the festival.

Susan Garey with Warland Investments Company commented that the Foundation had a steady flow of people visiting the booth throughout the day, with lines of children waiting for a chance to spin the wheel. Part of the draw, was the toys that the Foundation was giving away to the children, courtesy of The Bandai Corporation. For the adults, the Foundation handed out grocery totes and pens.  The main object of having the booth was to educate the people, primarily Cypress residents, on the Foundation's mission, in providing financial assistance to the Cypress Police Department. Literature was distributed about the Foundation, urging people to visit the website to learn more about the Cypress Police Foundation at www.cypresspf.org."

The Foundation is governed by its Board of Directors presently composed of about 16 members, all of whom are business and civic leaders within Cypress and the surrounding communities. All of the board members participated by taking turns working the booth.

Matt Herrick with Southland Credit Union said: "The popularity and success of this booth surpassed our earlier expectations. It is likely that we will have such a booth every year at the Festival."
