Badges and Barbells is a program that pairs police and local youth to help promote fitness and improve relationship between youth and law enforcement. Covington Police Chief Andrew McCurdy started the program in the Highline School District and would like to bring it to Covington. The Cedar Heights Middle School PTA is working to raise funds with a clothing and textile drive to get the program there, which includes purchase of new fitness equipment.
There will be a collection bin at Covington City Hall throughout the month of April and early May to pre-collect clothing and textiles that will be given to the PTA during the official collection week of May 9-13. Acceptable items include new and gently used clothing, paired shoes, towels, stuffed animals, hats, sheets, blankets, quilts, bedspreads, drapery, purses, and belts. All items must be dry and clean.
Sorry, no glass, breakables, pet beds, electronics, bed pillows, carpeting, uniforms, matresses or hotel linens.
