Check out our recent events with the CAPA family!

Adopt-A-Highway

On 11/10/19, CAPA picked up trash to help beautify our little part of Apex of Kelly Road, between Old US1 and Olive Chapel Road. We do this 4 times a year. We didn’t find anything unusual this time! Way to go team!

Tip A Cop

Several people came out to Red Robin and supported the Apex Police fundraising for Special Olympics of NC for Tip A Cop day!!

Did you know that Special Olympics is North Carolina’s largest sports organization for people with intellectual disabilities? And when you donate to Special Olympics, you’ll contribute the equipment, attire, and health supplies that can help transform an athlete’s life.

On Friday, 10/18/19, these CAPA volunteers collected a $500 donation for Special Olympics of NC. It could have been the dancing…

Blanket Buddies

On Saturrday, another amazing group of kids from Olive Chapel’s @ocekidscorps helped CAPA assemble 14 no sew blankets to be donated to SAFEchild. Thank you for serving!

A Day Behind (Handle) Bars

On 9/28/19 the APD and CAPA joined hands for the 3rd Annual Apex PD A Day Behind (handle) Bars. This 100 mile ride shows support for the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics North Carolina.

Since 1968, Special Olympics has been changing attitudes about the talents of people with intellectual disabilities.

By supporting this campaign, people are helping fund nearly 40,000 athletes all across North Carolina compete in 19 different types of sports. More importantly, they are giving them opportunities to demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.

Tidal Wave Car Wash

On Saturday, the APD and CAPA were out at Tidal Wave Auto Spa in Apex from 8am to 5pm to support Special Olympics by helping to wash cars and entertain.  Tidal Wave Auto Spa is a fantastic new auto spa.  Stop by and check them out!

Child IDs

This was an event for Apex First Baptist’s Community Fun Day – Back To School Bash. Backpacks and school supplies were distributed, there was free food and activities for the kids provided by various church members and community groups.  CAPA was out there to do Child IDs and the Apex Police Department was on-hand to better get to know its neighbors. A good time was had by all!

Apex Mosque

Some of the advantages of volunteering with CAPA. Thank you to everyone who came out early in the morning to assist with overflow parking at the Apex Mosque. Especially these two fun-loving knuckleheads 🤪

Adopt-A-Highway

Community and Police working together! Thank you Apex Police Department for helping CAPA clean our section of Kelly Road this past Saturday. I hope this won’t be the most fun they have all week 🙂

No Sew Blankets

On 6/22/19, CAPA finished another HAPPY morning making no sew blankets for SAFEchild. SAFEchild – which stands for Stop Abuse For Every child – supports families having a wide range of needs. Expertly trained professionals and volunteers build strong families in which parents nurture thriving children.  SAFEchild annually serves nearly 9,000 children and families through parenting programs and the SAFEchild Advocacy Center and empowers 13,000 Wake County first graders through the school-based Funny Tummy Feelings program. The members of Olive Chapel Elementary Kids Corps helped us with this great event!  It is a Club for 4th & 5th Graders who are interested in serving others through servant leadership.  Thanks to everyone who attend, we will be delivering the blankets soon!
