HIRAM — The Hiram Police Department is continuing to raise money for its first every K9 team with several fund-raisers.

In partnership with Hiram police, the sale of Yankee Candle products will provide 40 percent of online proceeds to the program through Dec. 31.

Links to the online sales can be found at the Hiram Police Department Facebook page or at the special Hiram Police Department K-9 Unit page at www.facebook.com/hirampdk9.

The group number 999982859 should appear on any Yankee Candle orders.

Also, the department is selling Texas Roadhouse peanuts for $5 a bag. Each bag comes with a free appetizer pass to the restaurant and all proceeds benefit the K9 program.

The peanuts will be sold at events in the village, or you can send a message on the department's Facebook pages to purchase them.

The department is currently about halfway to its $20,000 fund-raising goal to purchase and train a K9 plus outfit the dog. Additional donations may be made at the Hiram Municipal Building at 11617 Garfield Road.
