That is enough for another 13 kids to go Shop with a Cop! on December 10th, thanks to the donations that were raised in their store throughout the month of September during “Cops Running Cone!”

B&R LogoThe Clackamas County Peace Officers Benevolent Foundation and the Gladstone Baskin & Robbin’s Ice Cream Shop are once again partnering to raise funds for the Foundation’s 10th Annual Shop with a Cop event.   Every $100 raised means one more kid can Shop with a Cop! on December 10th, 2016.

You can learn more about the CCPOBF Shop with a Cop! event at http://ccpobf.org/Christmas-shop-with-a-cop

Called “Cops Running Cone,” every Tuesday in September from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm, there will be at least one Police Officer or Deputy Sheriff scooping ice cream for customers.  The price of the ice cream will be discounted during these hours.

New President of the Clackamas County Peace Officers Benevolent Foundation

At the last Board of Directors meeting, the Benevolent Foundation elected Jay Weitman as its new President.  Jay is a Sergeant with the Lake Oswego Police Department and has been a member of the Board of Directors for several years.  Sergeant Weitman is very active in the County-wide police Peer Support Program and a long-time Honor Guard member, participating in many local, regional, state and national ceremonies with Clackamas County interagency teams.

Mark Koberstein and his wife, Terri, are moving to Grants Pass, Oregon to, as Mark’s wife would say, “finally retire”!  Mark & Steve Hyson were the founders of the Benevolent Foundation and for the last 10 years it has been Mark’s passion.  This followed a 33 -year career in law enforcement.  Mark will stay on the Board of Directors until a transition has been successfully completed.

The caring of the law enforcement family in Clackamas County will continue to be the primary purpose of the Foundation.  The Foundation will also remain active with other charitable activities in the County, in line with its mission.

On a side note, the last member of the original Board of Directors to serve on the Board is Wilda Parks.  Wilda was recruited in 2006 while the President of the North Clackamas Chamber of Commerce.  Her business savvy and connections to the business community in the county were key to the initial success of the Foundation.  Wilda now serves on the City Council of the City of Milwaukie.

 

Families of Dallas PD

The Clackamas County Peace Officers Benevolent Foundation has set up an account at the Clackamas Federal Credit Union to accept donations to assist the families of the Police Officers killed in the line of duty in Dallas, Texas.

Although these families are not directly connected to Clackamas County, they are a part of our extended police family.  The circumstances of these deaths is shocking and the Foundation, on behalf of all the police officers in Clackamas County, would be wrong to not help in some way.

All donations received to help the Families of Dallas PD will be sent to assist them.  The Foundation does not assess administrative fees for donations received.

The CCPOBF is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit.

If you would like to help, please send a check to:

CCPOBF, PO Box 678, Clackamas, Oregon 97015

Make your check out to CCPOBF with Dallas PD in the memo line.  A tax receipt will be mailed to you promptly.

Thank you.

Help Support Camp Hope 2016

The Clackamas County Peace Officers Benevolent Foundation is very honored to assist the coordinators of the Clackamas County Camp HOPE, to be held at Camp Arrah Wanna, in Welches.  There will be two iterations of the Camp, July 3-8, 2016 and July 10-15, 2016. 

The coordinators of the Camp must raise all the funds to operate Camp HOPE through donations and grants.  Please read through the below information and if you would like to donate, please see the donation information at the end of the page.

 

What is Camp HOPE?

CampHope_fulllogo_Final_ColorThe idea behind Camp HOPE is to help children heal from trauma and have the fun, playful experiences that they deserve. Developed through the National Family Justice Center Alliance in 2003, Camp HOPE is based on proven research that indicates how important hope is for child survivors of violence. It is a natural extension of the Family Justice Center model.

Camp HOPE, structured around Dr. Chan Hellman’s “HOPE Theory” research, provides children ages 7 to 15 who have been exposed to domestic and/or sexual violence with the opportunity to get outdoors, play, and have fun. These experiences sound simple enough, but for youth whose lives have been affected by violence, they are even more crucial to recovery from trauma. The camp includes programmatic elements related to emotional care (such as nightly check-ins and positive character trait development), but the main focus is on promoting healing through active play and recreation, including archery, river rafting, and field games. We are searching for dedicated individuals to be positive role models and build relationships with our campers, as well as assist in creating a safe space for the campers to have fun!

Why Here?

A Safe Place Family Justice Center first participated in the model by bringing children from our programs to Camp HOPE California in 2014. Feedback from the local campers was overwhelmingly positive and these experiences both allowed advocates and counselors to learn from this valuable work and served as a catalyst to establish Camp HOPE Oregon so that more children from A Safe Place have increased access to this valuable opportunity. This summer marks the second year that Clackamas Women’s Services and A Safe Place Family Justice Center have hosted Camp HOPE Oregon at Camp Arrah Wanna, right here in Clackamas County.

Autumn Rose is back home!

Autumn is home! She was able to fly back last night and is happy to be back where she can finish recovering more comfortably.

Right now, the pressure from swelling in her brain causes light sensitivity, visual disturbances, numbness/tingling in her extremities, and of course pain–but now that the tumor is gone, these symptoms are TEMPORARY! Each day the swelling goes down a bit more and she feels a bit better.

Thank you all for your prayers and keep them coming! If you are in the area and would like to provide a meal for her and her family, please send me a message and I will get you the info needed.

Rae

To send Rae a message, go to the GoFundMe account at https://www.gofundme.com/helpautumnrose, click on the Message icon next to the name Rae Snyder, then select Contact the Organizer.

And even more good news!

From Autumn Rose’s sister, Rae, about 12 hours ago:

Just wanted to let you all know that we got the results back from pathology and Autumn’s tumor was 100% benign! She is still doing really well–resting a lot, walking around the house several times a day, and we have been able to manage her pain with ice and pain meds. This is the slower, less exciting part of her recovery but we still need lots of prayers and good vibes! Love you all ❤
