Menlo Park Police Foundation’s Annual Paws for Paws Event - “Taking a Paws-on Approach to Crime"

PAWS for PAWS

Menlo Park, CA – The Menlo Park Police Foundation invites all dogs (and their owners) to attend the Second Annual Paws for Paws Walk on Sept. 9 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Burgess Park. The event will feature a 2.5k walk, K-9 demonstration, raffles, vendors, contests and much more!

Last year’s proceeds enabled the purchase of bulletproof vests for the Menlo Park Police Department’s K-9’s. This year, profits will go toward not only the K-9 program, but also scholarships that support victims of crime and programs that fund youth-related community sports.

The Menlo Park Police Foundation is comprised of several community leaders and directed by former Menlo Park Police Commander Terri Molakides. The Foundation supports the Menlo Park Police Department’s efforts to fight crime through Paws for Paws and other fundraising efforts.

“This event is an outstanding opportunity for community members and law enforcement to support a worthy cause, while enjoying each other’s company with our most cherished four-legged companions.” – Chief Robert Jonsen

The Paws for Paws Walk promises to be a day of fun activities, a chance to meet new friends and win cool prizes, and a great way to support your community. There is no charge to attend the event, only to participate in the raffles and contests. Tickets are available on the event’s webpage.

For information regarding volunteer or sponsorship opportunities, please contact Terri Molakides at 650-804-5108 or visit the Menlo Park Police Foundation’s webpage
