Coffee with a Cop Breast Cancer Awareness flyer

In 2016, we partnered with @Coffeewithacop and our local @Starbucks to provide residents the opportunity for real conversations about issues that matter. Add a few minutes to your coffee run on October 5th to chat with your Lake Forest police officers. We'll be at Starbucks, 672 N. Western Avenue and 840 S. Waukegan Road from 6:30-9:30 a.m. Building relationships one cup at a time.  

New this year! As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We have created commemorative patches in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. During the entire month of October, these patches will be available at the Public Safety Building (lobby) for a $20.00 donation (while supplies last). We will also host various pop-up donation sites:

  • Oct 5th - 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. – Coffee with a Cop – Starbucks (both locations)
  • Oct 16th - 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. – The Public Safety Open House – Public Safety Building
  • Oct 29th - 8 a.m. to noon – Gerhard's Bakery – Market Square

All proceeds will go directly to the Posy Krehbiel Breast Care Center which is located at Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital.
