Shelter gets financial boost from cops

Brandon police are helping out a program that they’ve made use of.

Working together, the Brandon Police Service and the Brandon Police Association have donated $1,498 to the Safe and Warm cold-weather shelter program, which will help the shelter fund its everyday operation.

The shelter is a service provided at Helping Hands on Seventh Street downtown, to provide a place for people who have nowhere else to go on cold winter nights.

The Brandon Police Service says it has made use of the program to provide shelter for people who would have otherwise been left out in the cold.

The donation money was part of the BPS/BPA Benevolent Fund which has assisted officers over many years with compassionate and education needs.

Brandon police Chief Ian Grant, along with police union treasurer Chris James and community policing officer Travis Foster, presented the money to Safe and Warm committee members Rhonda Smith of the Salvation Army and Marla Somersall of Samaritan House late last month.
