Public Safety Employee of the Month
October 2020 - Kim Kleimola, Records Clerk
Records Clerk - Kim Kleimola
Due to your selfless volunteer service to the Novi community and the generosity of your time and support, I want to thank and congratulate you on your selection as Novi's Public Safety Employee of the Month for October - 2020. You were nominated by Assistant Chief Erick Zinser, Lieutenant Jason Meier, and me.
During the month of October, the Novi Police Department sponsored the Pink Police Car to collect monetary donations and raise community awareness for breast cancer. You were one of the initial volunteers and worked with Lt. Kulikowski to have the car at various events throughout the city. You helped during nights and weekends to support the event collect donations, and share your story to inspire others. You spent several hours at each location, even attending during your lunch hour. You volunteered on October 1st at Paradise Park, Wal Mart on October 3rd and at Ascension Providence Hospital on October 9th. You continued to assist on October 13th at the Novi Civic Center and finally at Kroger on October 25th. The feedback we received from these events was NOTHING but positive - and in no small part due to your effort. The social media buzz generated created a positive atmosphere on an otherwise negative topic. It also emphasized how our colleagues in public safety strive to Partner with Our Community to assist helping those in need. Your volunteer spirit on your off-time is an example others should emulate and follow. Virtually everyone has had a family member, friend, neighbor, or significant other impacted by this deadly disease. With your help and all those involved, we were able to raise nearly $3,000 in donations which will be donated to Ascension - Providence's Believe in Miracles fund to assist cancer patients with medications, transportation and treatment as the fight their battle with this horrible disease. This type of spirit is indicative of the mission, vision, and values we all strive for as members of the Novi Police and Fire Departments.
Congratulations to you on being named as the October 2020 Public Safety Employee of the Month.
