Harley Owners Donate $22,500 for Continued Operation of FOP Youth Camp

July 18, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Music City Harley Owners Group (HOG) Chapter, in association with Boswell’s Harley Davidson, this week donated $22,500 toward the continued operation of the Fraternal Order of Police Youth Camp for underprivileged boys and girls.
          
Hundreds of children, who are identified by police officers during the year, attend one of several week-long summer camps on Old Hickory Lake.  In activities supervised by volunteer officers who serve as counselors, the youngsters learn the importance of citizenship, teamwork and sportsmanship.
          
“The Fraternal Order of Police deeply appreciates the continuing support of Boswell’s, the Music City HOG Chapter, the Revolutions Motorcycle Club and the Blue Knights,” said Sergeant Robert Weaver, President of the FOP’s Andrew Jackson Lodge.  “The important connection between officers, Nashville’s youth and the corporate community are vital in the continuing success of all.”
          
The Harley Owners Group is also a significant supporter of the police department’s annual Christmas Basket Program, which provides gifts of food and toys to disadvantaged families on Christmas Eve morning.
