Blood Tribe Police Contribute To Popular Local Charity Initiative 

 

LETHBRIDGE, Alta., December 9th, 2014 -- The Blood Tribe Police Service is proud to have once again played a role in the annual Teddy Bear Toss at the Lethbridge Hurricanes Game on December 7th, 2014. 

 

The Blood Tribe Police Service were represented by Sergeant Jim Bennett, Cst. Aaron Thomas, Cst. Don Roper on the ice, who were accompanied by their families. Officers not only helped solicit donations prior to the event, but assisted in the collection of donated items during the game. Additionally, Blood Tribe Police vehicles were present in show-and-shine condition to gather the toys from the ice. Blood Tribe Police members will also be assisting in the transport and distribution of these items to less fortunate children during the Holiday season.

 

“It’s a wonderful initiative and we’re so pleased to have been asked to take part again this year. Our officers really enjoy interacting with the community during events like this.” Offered Lee Boyd, Chief of the Blood Tribe Police Service.

 

The annual event raised over 300 teddy bears for disadvantaged children and families and was considered a great success by any measure.

 

Blood Tribe Police extend their thanks to the public and all attendees of the event for their generosity and participation.
