This year the Grand Rapids Police Department has partnered with the Cap Baker Lions Club for a great cause. They are in the process of gathering donations to secure funding to purchase two vision screening instruments that will be used in schools across Itasca County. These machine are used to identify vision problems in children which would otherwise go undetected and can lead to learning disabilities or other issues that are easily identified with these instruments. These instruments are expensive and cost nearly $10,000 dollars each. Cap Baker Lions works with the school districts by volunteering their time and borrowed instruments at this time.

Officers from the Grand Rapids Police Department that are participating in this event are each donating $60.00 per officer to this cause. Officers are also collecting donations from citizens to raise as much money as we can for the Cap Baker Lions Club toward this cause.

Volunteering and community service programs such as this are great causes for our officers and community to give back to the area and in this case provide for the children of our community. This is truly a great cause that will help our youth succeed as they learn.

All money donated will be turned over to the Lions Club in December and 100 percent of the money raised will go to the purchase of the instruments.
