The McKeesport police annual fund drive is underway.

A spokesman said the donations are used to purchase non-budgeted items and equipment used by officers while serving McKeesport and Dravosburg, which is patrolled by city police under a contract with the borough.

Donations are strictly voluntary, a spokesman said.

“The items purchased from these donations are used on a daily basis by our police department,” he said. “Several of these items would not have been purchased if it were not for the generosity of the local businesses and private citizens of both McKeesport and Dravosburg.”

Checks may be made payable to “McKeesport Police Annual Drive Fund” and mailed to 201 Lysle Blvd., McKeesport, PA 15132.

Members of the fund drive board this year include president, police Sgt. Nicholas Matthews, vice-president Detective Steve Kondrosky, treasurer Lt. Robert Eastman and trustees Detective Daniel Goughnour and Detective Sidney Summers.
