Mission

The lodge operates a summer camp program for underprivileged children at its facility in Wilson County, on Old Hickory Lake. Through the camp, we seek to develop team building and break down cultural barriers and stereotypes children may believe about police officers.
Background

Andrew Jackson Lodge No. 5 has a long history of working with underprivileged children in the community. These service-project programs are funded by donations from the community we serve. The funds are obtained from ticket sales to the Policeman’s Ball and other fund raisers through out the year.
Impact

The 35 acre property has been developed into a site that has a pool, bunk house, mess hall, ball field and lake access. The weeklong curriculum of activities is geared to develop team building and break down cultural barriers. The counselors are all police officers working in conjunction with the city to break the stereotype these children normally have of police officers. The camp serves 300 children per summer, on average. Our Shop With a Cop Program serves 60 children per year. 
Needs
 
We need funding for our programs. We are a non-profit organization, and every donation goes toward our Programs. Monetary donations may be sent to:
 
440 Welshwood Drive
Suite 100
Nashville, TN 37211
 
We also need supplies for the summer camp, including bath & hand soaps, shampoos, conditioners, sunblock, twin bedding, towels and washcloths.  
 
For the Shop With a Cop Program, we need supplies such as wrapping paper, tape, and name tags.

Description As in the past 17 years, this annual event is held at the Rivergate Wal-Mart store. The program provides each child with between $250-$300 to buy much needed clothing, personal items, and gifts for themselves and family members. Funding for the program is provided by the FOP, donations to the FOP Camp, and Wal-Mart itself. About 60 children participate in this event every year.

Your brother and sister FOP members from the six summer camps select the kids. From these camps, a list of four kids is selected as the ones who may not be the best campers, but the ones with the greatest need for help. Once selected, the kids are brought to Wal-Mart by police officers and the officers actually shop with the kids as they pick out gifts for members of their family. The gifts are then wrapped by the officers and family members of the officers. While the gifts are being wrapped, Wal-Mart provides a meal for kids.

This annual program seems to give the officers and their families a way to give back to the community by helping the ones who would normally not be able to help themselves. The kids are more than thankful for being able to do something for their family.

Youth Violence

In Tennessee, gang presence has been on the rise since the late 1980s and early 1990s, when gangs first made a concerted push into the state. Since 2011, police have identified at least 5,000 gang members in Davidson County, and gang-related crimes have increased by 25%. Meanwhile, cities with 50,000 or fewer inhabitants have seen gang-related crimes triple in frequency nationally since 2005.

Childcare & After-School Programs

All Tennessee families should have access to high quality, developmentally appropriate child care and after-school programming for their children, regardless of income level.
