Law Enforcement Association Halloween Bike for Kids in the Community Giveaway
(Hyattsville, MD) The Hispanic American Police Command Officers Association (HAPCOA) National Capitol Region Chapter joined forces with the Hispanic National Law Enforcement Association (HNLEA), the Association for Police Attaches of Latin America (APALA) and the United Black Police Officers Association (UBPOA) in order to hold a bicycle and helmet giveaway for kids in the community of Hyattsville during Halloween 2017. The event was sponsored by both Mega Mart and the Metropolitan Protective Services.
Association members from the Prince Georges County Police Department, and APALA participated in the giveaway of over 60 bikes and helmets.
Mega Mart provided a venue for children and their parents from the predominately Latino neighborhood near the store to safely celebrate Halloween, receive gifts, candy and bikes from law enforcement association members.
This is all made possible with partners such as the Mega Mart in Hyattsville and Metropolitan Protective Services in Lanham,” said HNLEA-NCR Vice President, Miguel Core.
Last year we were able to refurbish several hundred bikes and provide them to people who could not afford them in the community,” said APALA Executive Director, Alex Zunca.
It is events such as this one that brings our communities together and builds a must needed trust in law enforcement, said HAPCOA-NCR Chapter President, Joe Perez. This event was an enormous success!
