On October 28, 2021, the Chetu Foundation celebrated National First Responders Day with a $10,000 check presentation ceremony intended to help support the local Sunrise Police Department and its community policing initiatives.
Committed to supporting first responders in the South Florida area, the Chetu Foundation – for the second year in a row – has made a $10,000 donation in support of those who make up the local emergency services. Last year, the foundation helped support the Plantation Fire Department that was grappling with lower-than-usual donations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, with Chetu expanding into its new headquarters in Sunrise, Florida, the intended recipient is the Sunrise Police Department, which will be looking to allocate the funds towards their community policing programs.
The check presentation ceremony, which was held at Chetu’s new headquarters, located at 1500 Concord Terrace in the Sawgrass International Corporate Park, featured opening remarks from representatives of the Chetu Foundation and was attended by Major Captain Keven Sweat of the Sunrise Police Department, who accepted the intended donation on behalf of the department, and the mayor of the city of Sunrise, Michael J. Ryan, who provided thanks to Chetu and welcomed them into the city.
Founded with the focus to improve childhood wellbeing and support local communities, the Chetu Foundation continues to help the company’s employees give back and support charitable initiatives and humanitarian relief efforts around the world.
