• Ocoee 6-year-old gives up birthday gifts to donate to police department


    OCOEE, Fla. - For the second year in a row, Noah Hall-King has raised money for the City of Ocoee. Noah, who is 6 years old, lives in Ocoee. For his birthday, instead of getting toys for presents, Noah likes to raise money for his favorite organizations.

    With the help of his mom, Cheryl King, along with donations from friends and family, the kindergartener collected $1,650 to be used for the Ocoee Police Department’s summer education programs for children.

    On May 6, at the Ocoee City Commission meeting, Noah presented police officers with $1,650 collected from his birthday party. For his efforts, Police Chief Charlie Brown gave Noah the Chief’s Special Award and Deputy Police Chief Ted Silberstein presented Noah with a bag filled with goodies.

    Last year, Noah raised $1,210.25 for the Ocoee Fire Department’s Fully Involved Program. The program involves firefighters helping physically challenged and low-income residents complete home-improvement projects.
