Signal 13 Board Partners with Local Hospital to Build Gym for BPD’s Special Operations Team

Thank you to Lifebridge Health for making it happen! The Special Operations team at the Baltimore Police canine and bomb squad facility desperately needed a place to work out, and Signal 13 Board Director Adele Greenebaum made it her mission to give them one. It started with a phone call to the leadership of Lifebridge Health who didn’t hesitate to jump in with support. Then came Merritt Clubs which donated the equipment. The project came full circle when Roesel-Heck Co. and U.S. Rubber provided the flooring for the gym. It was a labor of love for everyone who knows the canine/bomb squad team might save your life one day. See how this project came together in this short video.



Please Lend Us a Hand in 2024

We have a small favor to ask. Thousands of Baltimore Police families have trusted the Signal 13 Foundation to support them during difficult times and when they need assistance paying for college for their kids.

Like other nonprofits, Signal 13’s funding depends on generous donations from individuals, companies and foundations. We can’t do what we do for Baltimore City Police in times of need without your support. Requests for assistance are increasing and we rarely turn a grant or scholarship applicant down.

Signal 13 is celebrating 40 years of helping Baltimore City Police, and the Board’s goal is to do even more to make their lives a little easier during stressful times. We do this because we believe in supporting the brave men and women in the Baltimore Police Department who put their lives on the line everyday to protect us and the city we love.
