For the second year in a row, two local agencies will benefit from the generosity of community members across Durham Region and beyond who purchased the 2016 K-9 Calendar.
During a presentation at the Police Services Board this morning, organizer D/Cst. Jim Stephenson, and members the DRPS K-9 team presented Kathy Asling of The Animal Guardian Society (TAGS) and Christie May and Jessica Scheffee of the Alzheimer Society of Durham Region with proceeds from this year's calendar.
During the 2016 season, members of the K-9 Team and DRPS volunteered their time to sell the calendars at community events. Many local residents and companies also agreed to promote the calendars at their business locations and organizations. Over $25,000 was raised from calendar sales, which was shared by the two agencies.
Thanks to everyone who took part in this initiative and donated to these great causes!
