Help York City Police Department!

York City's Police Department lip-sync challenge video was not shown at Saturday's York Revolution's game because Mayor Michael Helfrich was "displeased" with Maple Donuts' presence in the video because the company uses "divisive messaging".

This video was pulled even though nearly $5,000 was raised at Saturday's game for the police department's motorcycle unit. This is unacceptable! Many supporters of the York City Police Deparment gave their time & money to make this video happen. It did not cost the City or it's taxpayers any money to produce.

This video was made all in good fun to participate in a nationwide trend set by first responders. There should be NO political arguments about a local company supporting a local police department, despite the political views that local company has. It has absolutely nothing to do with the reason or goal of the video. To appease all parties involved, a disclaimer was added to the beginning of the video but this still is not good enough for our local government.

HELP US show Mayor Helfrich and the City of York that we support the York City Police Department, the York Revolution, Be Blonde Productions, and Maple Donuts for doing something fun and harmless during a time when there is so much anger and biased happening in our country. Let's raise $5,000 to match what was already raised! Bailey Coach will start by donating the first $500.00 and Maple Donuts will match that amount. All proceeds will go directly to the York City Police Department motorcycle unit for new equipment.
