Charitable Connections

Winter Wool Campaign

From November 1, 2020, to March 1, 2020, our officers will be growing out their beards to help make sure the kids in our community have a happy holiday season. Children have been drastically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Charlottesville Police Department wants to ensure they get everything they need just in time for the holidays by partnering with Toy Lift Charities. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for Toy Lift by December 15. Click here to make donation.
