Munster Students Hold "Caps for K-9s", Penny War Fundraisers

K-9 Unit

The Munster Police Department would like to thank our town's elementary school students and staff members for participating in a "Caps for K-9's" fundraiser on Friday, March 3, 2023 which was held at each of their schools.  Each student who wished to donate $1 that morning was able to wear a hat for the school day and all proceeds benefited our department's K-9 Unit.  Our K-9's then visited the students of each of the schools as they were lined up along the hallways that day.  Photos from their visit are displayed below.

In addition, St. Paul's Lutheran School took it a step further by holding a Penny War at their school where an additional donation of over $1,200 was raised for the K-9 Unit.  

Again, thank you to St. Paul's, Eads, Elliott, and Frank Hammond Elementary School for their generous support of our K-9 Unit.  St. Thomas More School was closed due to the weather forecast and plans on holding a similar fundraiser later this semester.

If you would like to provide a donation to our K-9 Unit, please make checks payable to the TOWN OF MUNSTER (memo: K-9 Unit) and mail them to the Munster Police Department, c/o Alex Reillo, 1001 Ridge Road, Munster, IN 46321.  Thanks in advance for your support!
