On Wednesday, June 13th, East Moline Police Officers traded in their uniforms for basketball jerseys.

The 3rd Annual Hoops 4 Hope took place at Hereford Park, 400 13th Street, East Moline. The goal of the event was to bring families in the Hereford Park community together with the police officers who serve them.

The event was created through a partnership with the East Moline Police Department and United We Ball, led by Kannon Burrage - an East Moline native and United Township graduate who played basketball overseas. It's sponsored by East Moline Main Street and will also include bounce houses, giveaways, free books, freed food, a cheer clinic, and new this year - kickball.

The event started at 4pm and the main basketball game started at 5pm.
