Since 2001, the ACE Charitable Foundation’s relationship with PAL has extended beyond the holiday season as a year-long sponsor of its Adopt-A-Center initiative. In addition to hosting the holiday party for Police Memorial, St. Benedict and Locke PAL Centers, support from the ACE Charitable Foundation allows the Centers to continue to expand their after-school curriculum, maintain existing general operations, and carry on their mission of “Cops Helping Kids.” The Centers provide free after-school programs to kids between the ages of 6-18, many of whom are economically disadvantaged.
