364 Gives Makes Significant Charitable Donations on Tuesday

Springfield, Mass. — On Tuesday December 7th 364 Gives, the charitable foundation of the International Brotherhood of Police Officers (IBPO) Local 364 Springfield Patrolman’s Union, presented two organizations in our community with sizeable donations in memory of Officer Kevin Ambrose.  364 Gives donated $5000 each to Pedal Thru Youth and the Ronald McDonald House of Connecticut and Western Massachusetts.

“Each year we host our golf tournament to honor the memory of Officer Kevin Ambrose and in turn raise money for some of the organizations Kevin and his family feel strongly about. This year we continued the tradition in Kevin’s memory and will be able to really help some worthwhile organizations,” said IBPO Local 364 President and Springfield Police Officer Joseph Gentile.

“Our officers and 364 Gives do an incredible job to raise money throughout the year to support local organizations. Our officers take pride in their work and take pride in our community”, said Springfield Police Commissioner Cheryl Clapprood.

Since its creation in 2011, 364 Gives has donated more than $150,000 to various organizations in our community.
