Poquoson Police Foundation Receives $1,500 Donation for K-9 Unit
March 04, 2021 // Franchising.com // Hampton, VA - Maaco Hampton, proudly donated $1,500 to the Poquoson Police Foundation in honor of one of their K-9 dogs, Rena, who passed away in late 2020.
Owners of Maaco Hampton, Dale, and Regina Blankenship have been in business for over 35 years and consistently give back to various causes important to the community.
“As a local business owner, my husband Dale and I are engaged in the community and are always looking for ways to give back,” says Regina Blankenship, owner, Maaco Hampton. “Although most of us may have never met Rena, she spends the majority of her time right here in our community, working to keep us safe.”
Officer Matt Fox works closely alongside his K-9 dog with the Poquoson Policy Department on a Tri-Rivers Drug Task Force. As a valued member of the team, K-9’s are certified drug detection dogs assigned to help the regional narcotics task force combat the opioid epidemic.
“We are animal lovers and think this is a great way to give back to our community while honoring this K-9 officer,” continues Blankenship. “These funds will go a long way in the training of a new K-9 dog to provide the Tri-Rivers Drug Task Force the support they need.”
The Poquoson Police Foundation was formed in 2019 as the only organization authorized by the Poquoson Police Department to accept donations and raise funds on the department’s behalf. The Foundation is volunteer-based, with proceeds used for police department projects.
