Guilderland P.B.A. 2016 Fund Raising Letter
The Guilderland Police Benevolent Association is currently conducting our annual residential fund drive. The Guilderland Police Benevolent Association is composed of the patrolmen, sergeants and investigators of the Guilderland Police Department.
The members of the Guilderland Police Benevolent Association appreciate all that the residents of Guilderland have given us over the years, not only in financial support, but also the moral support. We take pride in providing the highest level of professional and courteous service, making our community one of the safest in the area.
One-hundred percent of your donations go directly to the Guilderland PBA. Monies raised through your generous donations have enabled us to contribute to many worthwhile organizations such as Pine Bush Little League, Pine Bush Girls Softball, Guilderland Babe Ruth, Guilderland Pop Warner, Guilderland Youth Lacrosse, Special Olympics, DARE, American Legion Riders, Leatherstocking Honor Flight, Adopt-a-Family and the Boys Scouts. The PBA also sponsors a scholarship each year to a graduating Guilderland High School senior.
This mail drive is the only fundraiser the Guilderland PBA conducts. We know how intrusive it is to receive calls at home; therefore, the PBA does not solicit by phone. Should you ever receive a call requesting a donation on our behalf, do not donate and report the incident to the police department. As in the past, we continue to do our gold sticker program, which provides a gold sticker for anyone that makes a donation of $50 or more.
In addition to the PBA website, the Guilderland Police Department can be found online at www.guilderlandpd.org. The police department has greatly increased their online presence over the past couple years and is dedicated to keeping the community informed. You can find the police department on Facebook at www.facebook.com/guilderlandpolice and follow on Twitter @guilderlandpd. We also encourage residents to take advantage of free public alerts via text and email the police department offers through Nixle. To opt in to receive text alerts, type the keyword ALERTMEGPD to 888777 or sign up at www.guilderlandpd.org for text and/or e-mail alerts.
We would also like to take this opportunity to invite you to join us on August 2, 2016, at Tawasentha Park for the Guilderland Police Department’s award winning National Night Out. It is an exciting night of great music and free activities for all. We hope to see you there.
In advance, I would like to thank each of you for your continued support and contributions that assist the many causes the Guilderland PBA supports in our community. We look forward to serving you in 2016.
