Arizona Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 44 for Corrections, Inc. (FOP44) has implemented four programs for our members or the general public to donate to. To donate to anyone of these three causes, just click on the donate buttons below.
K-9 FOR TEARS
When our Lodge Chaplain or ADC CIRT Members answer calls for help, they sometimes encounter young children caught in traumatic, emotional and unstable situations.
The K-9 for Tears program will offer the children a stuffed K-9 animal in the hopes of providing some comfort in a terrible situation.
Children are all too often not the reason that we are requested, but the situations can leave them frightened, anxious and confused. The stuffed K-9 animals are used to help these young children cope with their distress by bringing them comfort and companionship.
The emotional support the stuffed K-9 animals bring to these children is immeasurable. With this reassuring gesture, our Lodge Chaplin or ADC CIRT Members are also able to create a bond with the children and help them realize that they are there to help. The stuffed K-9 animals become a source of comfort and well-being even after we are gone.
Stuffed K-9 animals are being provided to Statewide CIRT Leaders to distribute to children
who are caught up in difficult situations.
FOP44 requests Community donations help support this program.
FOP44 is excited to join 19 other law enforcement agencies together for this program in Arizona.
The Shop-with-A-Cop program allows youths, teens, and seniors to enjoy a Christmas or Holiday Season that they otherwise would never get the opportunity to experience.
Youth and teens are screened by individual Departments and local community outreach programs within the valley for need and to make sure they are doing well in school and
staying out of trouble. This program is set up to allow all law enforcement, not just police officers, to become involved with this amazing program throughout the state. ADC has a large presence in helping with this great program.
Seniors will be selected based on need through our Aging Safely Program.
FOP44 Members have voted to join this program and with the Lodge support, additional ADC children can participate in the program.
GOOD OF THE ORDER
The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 44 for Corrections "Good of the Order" fund, starts with a simple philosophy of TAKING CARE OF OUR OWN.
Outside of our efforts to comfort children in need with either the K-9 for Tears or Shop-with-a-Cop support, we also raise money for ADC Officers (Member or not) in the time of need. We have also made monetary donations, in-kind services, and resource referrals to support ADC/ADJC Officers.
Donations to the "Good of the Order" fund also go to support:
National FOP 5/5/5 Give Back Program
- Critical Incident Programs
- Department Memorial Service
ARIZONA FOP FOUNDATION
NATIONAL FOP FOUNDATION
- Disaster Relief
- Critical Incident Programs
- Educational Programs
- National Memorial Service (National Police Week)
- Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics
The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 44 for Corrections has been part of the discussion since the ADC Fallen Employees Memorial Committee was founded. The Lodge is looking for members and the public to donate to our effort to make the memorial a reality .
Donations to this fund will be used to further the FOP name within the memorial and honor ADC/ADJC employees lost in the line of duty.
