$40K gift for city van purchase

The Board of Supervisors approved a $40,000 gift Tuesday allowing the Police Chief to spend it on the purchase of two new passenger vans.

The gift was donated by a group of supporters of the San Francisco Police Department’s Wilderness Adventure Youth Program. The program, run by the Police Department, takes kids on wildness trips.

“We are deeply impressed with the activities of this program and are happy that it will again be possible to have vans available that can meet the school district requirement for transport of its students,” said Walt Scott, president of support group, in a letter.
