LaSalle Police Youth Foundation Donates $2500 to The Safety Village

In November 2023, The Safety Village initiated a fundraising campaign with a target of $5000 specifically earmarked for enhancing the lighting in the Safe Kids Classrooms.

These rooms are designed and equipped for use by police officers, firefighters, and paramedics with specialized training from the Windsor Police Service, the LaSalle Police Service, Windsor Fire Service, LaSalle Fire Service and Essex County EMS to deliver educational sessions to elementary school-aged children from Windsor and Essex County, covering various safety and crime prevention topics. Additionally, both the LaSalle Police Service and The Safety Village actively participate in various events at The Safety Village and in our communities throughout the year.

As of now, the fundraiser has successfully secured approximately $2500 in contributions. The LaSalle Police Youth Foundation, managed by members of the LaSalle Police Service, conducts various fundraising events throughout the year. Their overarching mission is to provide financial support to youth-related initiatives, activities, and organizations in LaSalle and Essex County.

The LaSalle Police Youth Foundation takes pride in contributing the remaining $2500 needed to finalize the lighting project at The Safety Village. This collaboration reflects the long standing partnership between the LaSalle Police Service and The Safety Village, emphasizing their commitment to educating the children of Windsor and Essex County on safety matters. We offer a special thanks to our donors for their ongoing support.

The Safety Village is a not-for-profit community organization whose mission is to create a community where every person knows how to stay safe and make smart choices. They rely on donations to continue to provide these valuable lessons to some of the most vulnerable and impressionable members of our communities.

Congratulations to Melissa Lauzon and her team at The Safety Village. Thank you and we wish you continued success.
