Our Beneficiaries: Who we are raising money for now.
The Citrus Heights community is rallying around its Citrus Heights Police Department to help the CHPD fund a workshop for officers and their families that teaches coping with post-traumatic stress incurred in the line of duty. The goal is to be able to pay for the speaker and travel fees for Kevin M. Gilmartin, Ph.D. to put on his workshop for CHPD officers and their families here in Citrus Heights. Mr. Gilmartin is known across the U.S. as an expert in his field. Police face some terrible statistics:
· Police Officers are 1.5 times more likely than average citizens to commit suicide
· Police officers life span is 10 years less than an average citizen.
The presentation by Mr. Gilmartin helps teach officers and their families how to deal with this on-the job stress so that they do not become these terrible statistics. The CHPD has an outstanding reputation in our community for exhibiting the highest standard in community policing. The way we help them keep this standard is by providing state of the art mental health support programs that are promoted by the highest levels of CHPD command.
The department currently does not have funding for these types of mental health programs, so the City of Citrus Heights has partnered with the Citrus Heights Women’s Club to rally the community to fund this important project. In order to help meet these funding goals, our club is holding the Taste of Citrus Heights event will be held at the Community Center on April 28th from 6pm -9pm. Our goal is to have around 40 different local restaurants, wineries, and breweries provide a tasting of their particular food or beverage. We will charge an admittance fee of $35 per person, and have a silent auction and raffle prizes.
Our 7th Annual Chili Cook Off and Car Show helps buy brand new toys and food for kids of domestic violence. We provide over 100 stockings filled with toys, tooth brushes, socks, and other goodies. Save the date of October 7, 2017 Lowe's Parking Lot, Citrus Heights. Call Darla for info 916-751-1918
