2021 Oxnard Police Department Pink Patch Campaign

 

OXNARD, Calif. (December 2, 2021)— For the fourth consecutive year, the Oxnard Police Department joined other law enforcement agencies across the country in October's “Pink Patch” campaign to raise funds and spread awareness for the battle against breast cancer. This year, Oxnard P.D. partnered with the newly-formed Oxnard Police Community Foundation and teamed with several local sponsors to raise funds through online auctions, a GoFundMe campaign, and several community “pop-up” fundraisers hosted at Oxnard Starbucks locations and Farmer’s Markets. These efforts raised a total of $15,000.00 for the Ribbons of Life Breast Cancer Foundation, a local 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity that provides support to breast cancer patients and survivors across Ventura County.

 

Oxnard Police Senior Officer Maria Peña spearheaded the campaign, and noted, “We picked Ribbons of Life as this year’s recipients, because I like how their services stay local and specifically benefit breast cancer patients and survivors who are right here, in our county.”

 

Upon receiving the donation at a recent presentation, Ribbons of Life President Sylvia Rosolek stated, “We would like to express our sincere gratitude for your Pink Patch

campaign to benefit Ribbons of Life Breast Cancer Foundation. Senior Officer Maria Peña did an outstanding job in organizing and executing the month-long event. It was heartwarming to see the Oxnard Police Department, Starbucks, and the community come together to support our cause. Thank you to everyone involved. Your generous donation will allow us to continue our mission to educate, advocate and meet the social and emotional needs of Ventura County women and their families facing breast cancer.”

 

The Oxnard Police Department and Oxnard Police Community Foundation would like to thank campaign sponsors: The Oxnard Peace Officers’ Association, Starbucks, Stacy Miller Public Affairs Inc., Payden & Rygel Investment Management, Absolute Plumbing & Rooting Inc., Nacho’s Towing, Oxnard Farmers Markets, Napalm Screen Printing, AAA Pool & Spa, Auto Body International, and Vogue Sign Company for their partnership in making this campaign possible.

OXNARD POLICE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION LAUNCHED 

OPCF will support community outreach and programs for OPD’s personnel and family members 

 

OXNARD, Calif. (February 3, 2021)—A group of community members have come together with the Oxnard Police Department to form the Oxnard Police Community Foundation (OPCF). The goal of the independent 501(c)(3) non-profit is to enhance public safety in the City of Oxnard by providing financial support to the Oxnard Police Department. The OPCF will support critical programs that are not funded by the City of Oxnard, such as community engagement events and peer support following traumatic work-related incidents.

Chief Jason Benites- “I’m very excited to partner with the Foundation to make Oxnard safer and stronger. With the Foundation’s support of our community events, we will continue to increase trust and respect. The Foundation’s support for officer wellness will allow us to better care for our officers, dispatchers, and support staff that protect and serve in this difficult and challenging profession.”

Policing through community engagement and partnerships is one of the ways the Oxnard Police Department is helping to reduce crime while making lasting connections between law enforcement and the public. Many communities across the country are forming non profit foundations to bridge funding gaps and assist law enforcement in acquiring the tools not covered in the regular budget.

Stacy Miller, Chair of the Board of Directors- “We hope the Foundation will help improve the quality of life for everyone in our Oxnard community by encouraging positive contacts between the Police and residents and fostering programs and initiatives to enhance public safety in Oxnard.”

 

The OPCF is guided by a Board of Directors composed of community members and sworn police personnel. The Board works with the leadership of the Oxnard Police Department to ensure the Foundation’s priorities and objectives align with those of the Department. The Board Executive Committee includes Stacy Miller, President, Carey Everhart, Vice President and Delia Campbell, Chief Financial Officer. Board Members include Jason Benites, Chief of Police and Luis McArthur, Police Commander.
