Paulding Public Safety Appreciation Inc. is a non-profit 501-c3 organization created to "Honor Those Who Protect Us." The goal of the organization is to help provide financial support to community protectors during their time of need, with the support it raises going to public safety personnel residing and/or working in Paulding County.
Through this annual event, the organization hopes to assist in the well being of those who have experienced life-changing and/or life-threatening circumstances in the line of duty or an unexpected incident. Officials also hope to provide assistance to the families of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice to ensure the community’s safety.
