MPD participates in Salvation Army red kettle challenge
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Some Milwaukee police officers were manning Salvation Army red kettles on Friday, Dec. 6, as part of a fundraising competition.
It's the annual MPD District Kettle Challenge.
Officers were stationed at a specific kettle in their district and will compete against the other police district to raise the most money in a four-hour period.
"This is actually our first time doing this as the community liason officers, so they reached out to us and we're like oh of course, yeah, it's a great opportunity, we would love to," said Milwaukee Police Officer Fabian Garcia.
Last year's MPD Kettle Challenge raised $3,000.
The district that raises the most money will be recognized at the Salvation Army's volunteer appreciation luncheon and will earn the 'Doing the Most Good' golden kettle traveling trophy for their district.
