January was international Crime Stoppers Month and close to 1,500 programs across the globe celebrated while increasing awareness of the community-based program that helps police solve crime. It is also the month we highlight our successes and thank our sponsors and supporters.
Crime Stoppers of Hamilton celebrated January’s International Crime Stoppers Month by running our DONUT DAZE fundraiser, partnering with Hamilton’s own Grandad’s Donuts. What a success this was. It wasn’t just about the donuts, but it was also about celebrating, sharing and raising awareness about our program with the help of our community.
Crime Stoppers relies on three pillars for success – Media – Law Enforcement – Community and WOW did our community pull through with enormous support during DONUT DAZE. It shows how important Crime Stoppers is to all of us. We also want to thank North End Breezes and the GALA for being our media partners and getting our messages out. What a great partnership this has been. Law enforcement continues to benefit from the strong triad of partnerships, without all three, Crime Stoppers does not exist.
Let’s show everyone how strong we are and help solve some crimes and get criminals off our streets.
Remember…Crime doesn’t pay BUT Crime Stoppers of Hamilton DOES!
