Cops For Kids-Tallahassee, Inc. is a non-profit organization (501C) comprised of law enforcement officers in the Big Bend Area. We work all year long to ensure that at Christmas, as many needy and deserving children in our area as possible have a bright Holiday Season. We provide new bicycles and helmets for children who are identified to us through the Christmas Connection, Boys and Girls Clubs of the Big Bend and other recognized social service agencies. Since 1999 we have provided over 3200 bicycles and helmets to children in the Big Bend. In addition, we have provided back to school clothing and supplies to deserving children.
Our goal is to foster positive law enforcement and citizen relationships while benefiting and protecting the children of our community. With the support of a dedicated team of area law enforcement officers, individual donors and corporate contributors we have brought smiles to the faces of thousands of children, many of them neglected, abused or living below the poverty line.
We have two major fund raising events each year:
The Protect & Serve Celebrity Waiter event at Marie Livingston's Steak House
Annual Cops FORE Kids Charity Golf Tournament
Virtually 100% of the donations collected by Cops for Kids - Tallahassee goes to buying bicycles, helmets and school supplies. We have to pay hosting fees for this web site and credit card processing fees, but most incidental expenses are covered by the individual officers from personal funds. All donations are tax deductible. We are very grateful for any financial contributions we receive and we are careful not to waste your hard-earned money.
