This morning Karie Greathouse, President of First Ward Neighbors, delivered Gatorade to the Central Division. Every year the First Ward Community Fund provides Gatorade to CMPD for use on the Fourth of July.
It’s always hot and the men and women of CMPD put in long hours on this national holiday. The gift is intended to convey our appreciation. Captain Johnson was surprised and pleased at the gesture from the neighborhood. He has been on the force for many years and has seldom seen this type of support. Both the neighborhood association and the Community Fund believe in our partnership with CMPD and we are pleased and proud as we help to make the 4th a safe and fun day for all who visit uptown Charlotte.
