Hats are collected every year at the seminar and then donated to local schools via the police department. Here is a photo of our last donation event. See more information under Seminar Info: Seminar Contests and Prizes.
Below is copied from the Cortland Police Facebook Page:
Today, Officer Wenz and I went to Smith Elementary School and Parker Elementary School to talk about kindness. The Silver Needles Knitting Club has worked tirelessly all year long in making warm winter hats and has donated them to the Office of Community Oriented Policing for a second year in a row. Each kindergarten student from both schools received a hat!
Please donate hats without names pn them, as we are trying to keep the children safe!
