Each year the Rotary Club donates the funds collected at its Patriots’ Day commemoration to the foundation.

City Manager Ed Densmore and Police Chief Mark Mitchell accepted the check on the foundation’s behalf.

The Johns Creek Public Safety Foundation was established in 2008 — soon after Densmore joined the city as Police Chief — as a non-profit entity with the goal of assisting firefighters, police officers and their families if they are injured or killed in the line of duty.

“It’s with many thanks that we [accept] this, I promise it will go to a very good cause, so thank you,” Densmore said.
