The event hosts several local, state and federal level agencies who provide information, safety demonstrations, equipment, hand-outs and more to the community. There will be several varieties of entertainment for children and their families including bounce houses, power-wheels races, smoothie machine bike, face painting, etc. as well as various food options. The event also offers a free car-seat check, Operation Safechild ID cards and bicycle helmet giveaway.
This event was developed with the idea of trying to promote positivity with the youth and families in our community with regards to not only Law Enforcement as a whole but also first responders and other agencies, while incorporating safety aspects to ensure they also take away a valuable learning lesson. The Oswego County Sheriff's Office also hosts a blood drive during the event at the Scriba Fire Hall, to promote the overwhelming need for community support as well as the invaluable experience of donating and giving back to others.
This event is completely non-profit except food expenses and a voluntary 50/50 raffle with half of the proceeds going to the winner, while the other half goes to a local community affiliate whose purpose orients around youth development. Donations in the past have included the New York State Sheriff’s Association Camp as well as the Boys and Girl Scouts of America, the Badge of Honor Association and the American Red Cross. There is also a silent giveaway portion, which consists of donations from local businesses. Names of attendees are drawn for those who place a submission for the various items.
