IMPD Extends Fundraising Efforts to Support the 2018 IMPD Clothe-a-Child Project

On the morning of December 19, officers and civilian employees of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) will participate in the annual Clothe-A-Child Program that will provide 35-40 Indy children with holiday cheer. The fun, festive day will begin at Hubler Chevrolet with a light breakfast, followed by police-escorted caravan of officers and children to do some holiday shopping at J.C. Penney’s and Shoe Carnival. Participants will then return to Hubler Chevrolet, where they will get a special visit from Santa Claus.

The Clothe-A-Child program is funded by generous donations and the human spirit of giving. The project would not be possible without the incredible support of Hubler Chevrolet, as well as J.C. Penney Department Stores and Shoe Carnival. Many of the officers and civilian employees are joined by family members to celebrate this heartwarming experience between officers and kids.

This year, IMPD Chief Bryan Roach authorized IMPD’s “We are Tougher than Cancer” campaign in October and November that provided officers and civilian employees special benefits in return for a donation to local nonprofits serving those affected by cancer. Due to the overwhelming response - with over $31,000 raised so far - Chief Roach has authorized an extension of the fundraising efforts to support this year’s Clothe-a-Child project. For a minimum donation of $25, officers will be permitted to continue growing their beards or wearing pink shirts under their uniforms.

Your support will help us meet the needs of Indy's police, fire and EMS.
