HPOU to host Jan. 25 713 Ministries fundraiser

HPOU will play host to the annual fundraising efforts of the 713 Ministries, founded by HPD Senior Police Officer Lloyd Anderson, the evening of Jan. 25 at the Breck Porter Building.

The 713 Ministries sponsors a faith-based service program in a South Park apartment complex. Many HPD officers serve as volunteer mentors and routinely contribute time to interact with apartment residents in need of health, education and recreation services that they can’t normally afford.

Anderson said many 713 supporters will be recognized with certificates of appreciation for their volunteer work and donations. The evening’s goal is $10,000 to be used by this eight-year-old non-profit.
