Community engagement is one of our main focus areas. Whether it’s connecting with our community through our Coffee with a Cop event, assisting families with their car seat installation, or care packages for the homeless—we listen to the needs of the people and communities around us and respond in ways that are meaningful. Our work allows us to build connections, form collaborations, and strengthen bonds with our neighbors to make a difference in their lives.
