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 as well as other various fund raising efforts conducted throughout the year.
Impact

The 35 acre property has been developed into a site that has a pool, bunk house, mess hall, athletic fields, basketball court, and lake access. The week-long curriculum of activities is geared to develop team building and break down cultural barriers. The counselors are 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 60-70 children per year. 
Needs This program is funded fully by donations from the community. We are a non-profit organization, and every donation serves to support the programs function. 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.

Category Youth Development Youth Development, General/Other
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years), ,
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.

Gangs in Middle Tennessee

Middle Tennessee's gangs are no longer just graffiti-spraying juvenile delinquents. They are armed and dangerous criminal enterprises that recruit young people with the allure of fast money, street status and a sense of belonging - even if the group they join may get them killed or sent to prison. Gangs are expanding from inner city neighborhoods to suburbs and small towns; they recruit in schools, playgrounds and neighborhoods. The percentage of Middle Tennessee's crimes caused by gangs is unknown; police are not able to track it consistently because it permeates our communities in a number of ways. But authorities say they see enough new activity to know gang activity on the rise.

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.

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.

Adoption & Foster Care

Parents dropping their kids off at school may not realize their child sits next to a young person in the foster care system. Students may not realize their classmate is not going home to his or her own parents, but to a group home or foster care placement. No sign on this child would alert anyone that he or she has likely suffered abuse, neglect, or abandonment.
