The local website eriealert.com is in the running for a $25,000 grant and needs your help. Created by Erie County Chief Detective Larry Dombrowski, eriealert aims to keep the citizens of Erie informed and up-to-date on criminal activity within the city of Erie. This program is run completely on volunteer fuel and is seeking some cash to help provide their volunteers with police radios, offer criminal justice scholarships to volunteers who help with the project, as well as help improve the eriealert website.
You can do your part to help the eriealert.com project by going to the Markham Mark of Distinction website here and voting for it. Markham Vineyards is providing $25,000 to the top two vote getters in this race. Currently (as of 6:00 PM August 16th), Erie is sitting in 4th place.
That’s not bad, but we can do better, can’t we? That question was rhetorical. You don’t need to answer it.
You can vote once a day up until September 7th.
I’m always supportive of all things that can help develop Northwestern Pennsylvania communities, and even more-so when it comes to helping to put criminals in the clink. So let’s get out there and do your part, Erie, Pennsylvania, to help take a bite out of crime.
