The Philadelphia Police Explorer Cadet Program got an unexpected boost from Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church last week, when the church donated $5,000 to the program.
"It was something you just don't expect," said Cpl. Bryan Coyle, a Police Department veteran who runs the cadet program. "It's a true blessing because now I can reach out to more kids."
Coyle said the surprise donation from Enon, on Vernon Road and Cheltenham Avenue, was presented to him during a ceremony he attended in which he was honored for his work with community youth.
