The community effort launched this week to raise U.S. $500,000 for the Benton Harbor Police Department (Benton Harbor, MI, U.S.) went well over the 50 percent mark on the first day.

Whirlpool Corp., which is based in Benton Harbor, MI, U.S., committed $250,000 to the effort and, with other donations, the fund reached $315,000, according to Martin Golob, president of the United Way of Southwestern Michigan. "With the generous gift from Whirlpool, the campaign is already off to a great start," Mr. Martin said.

The $500,000 is aimed at helping bridge the Benton Harbor Police Department's budget shortfall as the city prepares a request for a $5 million federal grant. Both efforts are part of a program to make it possible for the department to hire more officers and upgrade equipment. (The Herald-Palladium Online)
