You may get a call in the coming days from a group called “The Police Retirees of Ontario” – or PRO.
Barrie Police are informing the public this is a LEGIT fundraising campaign.
The organization assists police retirees – but at the end of the fiscal year, surplus money is donated to children’s charities.
This year, PRO is continuing to distribute “PRO Teddy Bears” to emergency services that work with kids – as the bears are used to comfort children going through traumatic situations.
If you have questions about this fundraising campaign, you can call 1-844-323-4003 – or visit their website www.policeretireesofontairo.com.
