A safety equipment grant in the amount of $10,000 will be donated to the Philadelphia Police Department in officer of Officer Charles Cassidy, who was shot and killed in the line of duty in 2008.
The Spirit of Blue Foundation is making this donation with financial support from the Dunkin' Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation.
Ballistic bulletproof vests will be purchased for officers in the 35th District in North Philadelphia, in which Cassidy served.
The vests will be purchased through the U.S. Department of Justices' Ballistic Vest Program, which provides matching funds.
