2017 Community Service Project

 

Committed to Community Wellness

STC members are committed to community wellness and environmental responsibility through the use of synthetic turf. Through their combined efforts, STC members have built fields and play areas across the country that increase opportunities for children to be active and play outside. The STC’s Community Service Projects have benefited Stuart-Hobson Middle School (2011) in Washington, D.C., SafeHaven of Tarrant County (2012) in Dallas, TX, and the City of Refuge (2015) in Atlanta, GA.

In 2017, the STC Board of Directors has identified Andrew Jackson Police Youth Camp in Nashville, TN as the next recipient of an STC Community Service Project. Nashville, TN is the host city for the STC 2017 Annual Membership Meeting on October 16-18, 2017. 

About Andrew Jackson Police Youth Camp

The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5 operates a summer camp program for underprivileged children at its facility in Wilson County, on Old Hickory Lake. The 35 acre property has been developed into a site that has a pool, bunk house, mess hall, ball field and lake access. The week-long curriculum of activities is geared to develop team building and break down cultural barriers. The counselors are all police officers working in conjunction with the city to break the stereotype these children normally have of police officers. The camp serves 300 children per summer, on average.

Providing Opportunities for Underprivileged Children in Our Community...

  • Keeps kids off the streets and away from gangs & drugs.
  • Builds positive and long-lasting relationships between police and their communities.
  • Provides kids with positive role models.
  • Shows kids that people in their community do care about them, especially their neighborhood police officers.
  • Participating children are provided needed articles for school and followed up with though the year by our school officers to continue the bonds built during camp.
