WHO WE ARE

WE ARE GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE

ridersGive Where You Live​ is a joint partnership between officers with the Belleville Police Service and local Ontario Provincial Police detachments, bringing together a renewed dedication to helping our local community, families and charitable organizations succeed.

The fall of 2017 during a two-week cycling event involving local police officers stops at approximately 30 local elementary schools, offering – as expected and anticipated – a dynamic, fun-filled school assembly and a positive message of hope to thousands of students across Hastings and Prince Edward counties.

MISSION STATEMENT

Our core service model is a two-week cycling tour in the fall of each year which visits local elementary schools to spread a message of positivity and community engagement through assemblies and other events within our service area.

CORE VALUES

Commitment to Engagement and Community Spirit:​ Through partnerships with schools in Prince Edward and Hastings counties we engage our stakeholders – the students, supported families and benefactor organizations – in an effort to spread a positive message of support and community spirit for all of those living in this amazing region of Ontario.
Culture of Collaboration and Excellence:​ By passionately working together as a unitive group and our supporting policing organizations, we challenge each other to achieve the highest levels of professional excellence.
Dedication to Integrity​: We believe integrity in our work, volunteerism and conduct, both individually and collectively. Integrity is a cornerstone of our program and is best demonstrated in building model relationships within our community.
Commitment to Participation and Connectivity:​ With an innovative and empowering spirit we engage our participating students and families through programming, publicity and ideas that shape social responsibility and advance sustainable, effective, locally-based philanthropy.

WHO WE SERVE

We serve the greater Quinte community, which includes – but is certainly not limited to – Prince Edward and Hastings counties and the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory.

CORE SERVICES

Give where U Live ​ is a community-based group formed by police officers and volunteers within Prince Edward and Hastings counties geared towards supporting, educating and engaging children about challenges local families face everyday.
Volunteer-based and driven, the initiative visits local schools to raise the awareness of students to issues directly impacting their peers, including – but not limited to – childhood cancer awareness; poverty and health care issues.
The endeavour also doubles as a third-party fundraiser for charitable and not-for-profit organizations which have a measurable local impact on the greater Quinte region for those specific causes.
In addition, the group works closely with those children and families impacted by the aforementioned challenges in an effort to demonstrate community spirit​:​ a unity of people who uphold similar values of cooperation to better society and give back to the community within which they live.
