NEWS RELEASE Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Donated from MSA to Help PAL Kids Have a Safe Summer Portland (Ore) – Join the Police Activities League of Greater Portland (PAL) on Monday, March 14, at 3:00 p.m., at the Northeast Community Policing Center, 449 N.E. Emerson, to welcome the delivery of a donated Harley-Davidson Roadster Screamin Eagle II worth more than $10,000. The donated motorcycle, which comes to PAL through the efforts of Portland Police Bureau Assistant Chief Jim Ferraris and MSA, will be raffled off on June 24, 2005 at the conclusion of the PAL Summer Sports Camp to support PAL’s youth programs. The Press Conference will include the presentation of the Harley, and brief remarks by Assistant Chief Ferraris, MSA representative Chris Sieritis, and PAL Executive Director Maura White-Cioeta. “Anything I can do that benefits kids I want to be part of,” said Ferraris. “PAL is a great program and I am happy to support their efforts.” MSA is a U.S. manufacturer of sophisticated safety products which protect millions of people around the world and is used by individuals involved in law enforcement, homeland security, fire service, military, construction, oil, gas and chemical industry as well as other industries. “MSA is very proud to take part in such a worthwhile program with the City of Portland Police Department,” said Ernie Batista, Homeland Security Manager at MSA World Headquarters. “The fact that the proceeds from the MSA Harley Davidson, The Enforcer, will go to such a great cause such as PAL, is such a bonus. This is a wonderful opportunity for MSA to support the community programs of the law enforcement heroes that serve our country day in and day out.” PAL is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization supported by law enforcement agencies including the Portland Police Bureau, Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, Port of Portland Police, FBI, Oregon National Guard, and Gresham, Troutdale, Vancouver, Molalla, Sherwood and Tigard Police Departments.
