Quincy PD to do a river dunk
On Feb. 9, the Quincy Police Department is going to show off its bravery and jump into the chilly water of the Columbia River at Walla Walla Point Park in Wenatchee. More than bravery, it’s an act of support for the Special Olympics.
It will be the first time for Quincy Police Department to participate in the plunge and collect donations for the Special Olympics, Quincy Chief of Police Kieth Siebert said.
You can support the “Quincy PD Copsicles” by donating at https://impact.sowa.org/fundraiser/1822834.
