Serving the citizens of Sierra Vista by conducting activities and fostering relationships through various fundraising and charitable functions.
The general objectives of the association consist of promoting charitable, fund raising, and patriotic activities among the association members and citizens within the community.
What we do:
The SVPOA Charities is currently managed by the same board as the SVPOA, but the organization is set up so that members of the community other than police officers can also participate. None of the SVPOA Charities’ board positions are paid and our expenses throughout the year consist mostly of advertising or printing (which tend to be minimal). The remainder of the money we raise goes directly into our charitable activities.
The Christmas with A Cop program was the inaugural or flagship program that led to the formation of SVPOA Charities organization. The Christmas with A Cop program was started in 2010 in an effort to assist under privileged children within our community. This program has grown in each year of existence. Last years event was the largest to date assisting 110 kids experience a fun morning with Officers, Santa Claus and numerous volunteers and organizations.
SVPOA Charities has extended it’s support to the community by supporting the local Forgasch House, members of the local Soccer Association, Boy Scouts and members of the local Girls Softball league; just to name a few.
The SVPOA Charities host an annual golf tournament and other smaller events to raise money. The events assist us in meeting our mission as well as our goals and objects for the organization.
