Fruitland Chamber of Commerce Hosts Successful Fundraiser, That Also Included Fundraising For The Police K9 Program

In a remarkable show of community support, the Fruitland Chamber of Commerce’s annual Apple Jam Dinner and Auction took on a special focus at the end of the auction this year as it rallied behind the Fruitland City Police canine program for drug detection. The Chamber, known for its commitment to promoting local businesses and community welfare, decided to end their fundraiser this year to benefit the vital K9 unit.

Leading the charge in this initiative was D.L. Evans Bank located at 1307 NW 16th St. in Fruitland. Recognizing the importance of supporting law enforcement efforts, the bank made a significant contribution of $2,500 to kick off the fundraising campaign. This generous donation set a strong foundation for the event and inspired others to follow suit.

The current K9, Axel, has faithfully served the community and is now 13 years old and approaching a well-deserved retirement. As the loyal companion and capable partner of the Fruitland City Police, Axel has been instrumental in detecting illegal drugs and enhancing public safety.

The fundraiser not only aims to support the retired K9 but also to ensure the seamless continuation of this critical program by aiding in the acquisition and training of a new police dog.

The Fruitland Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with local businesses and residents, demonstrated their commitment to supporting law enforcement and ensuring the safety and well-being of the community. The success of this event not only exemplifies the spirit of giving and cooperation but also highlights the importance of recognizing and honoring the dedicated service of law enforcement.

As the Fruitland Chamber of Commerce continues to foster relationships within the community and promote initiatives for public welfare, their efforts to support the police K9 program serve as an example of how collective action can make a meaningful difference in enhancing public safety and strengthening community bonds.
