342 Arnett Boulevard 14619

We want to see our neighborhoods and streets become safer places for the families who live and visit here, the businesses invested here, and the churches who worship here. We are here to make a lasting difference. Reducing the number of guns available to people on the streets and in homes where violence can occur is crucial. Please consider supporting our efforts with financial backing and join the growing list of those who are standing with us in this cause (see sponsor list). We hope to raise at least $10,000 for gift cards, some in donor gifts and some in matching funds from businesses.

Any donation is tax deductible and made out to:

Rochester Police Foundation, Inc.

206 Park Avenue

Rochester, NY 14607

Note in memo "for PCIC Sept 28 SW Gun Buyback"

Donations can be given to a member of our committee or mailed to the above address. Please contact us if you want to be listed as a supporter or are a business that would like to provide matching funds. The attached letter from Police Chief Sheppard expresses his endorsement and collaboration in this event. With the media attention this will draw, we want to present a united front working together to improve our community, including citizens, businesses large and small, service agencies, churches, schools, and educational institutions. Your gift can be integral in turning our community around so our streets are safer again. Thanks for spending time reading about our buyback and responding to our appeal for support.
