An IRC 501(c)(10) Organization
Our prayer is that each of you are doing well and taking care of yourselves and your families.
The outbreak of COVID-19 has created a unique experience that none of us have never encountered in our lives.
Although our medical personnel have always excelled in their daily tasks prior to this event, they have answered the call of all humankind, exceeded all expectations and have given selflessly of themselves to battle this pandemic and take care of us all. As September 11, 2001 focused more on law enforcement and firefighters, the event upon us now is their 9/11. All medical personnel and medical responders deserve no less than our highest praise and honor for what they are going through at this time. They are overworked, understaffed and not only risking their lives but also the lives of their families.
Our challenge to you...make an effort to "Thank" every medical professional you encounter. Support and love will sustain them and get them to the end of this. If possible, do something for them (food, cards, supplies, etc) to show you care and appreciate what they are doing. EVERYONE can help them by adhering to all the guidelines. The social distancing and hygiene will reduce the number of cases and reduce the possibility of exposure to our heroes and their families.
God bless our heroes and our resolute nation.
Together, "We the People" will prevail as we always have.

HEROES CATASTROPHE RELIEF FUND
All law enforcement officers as well as all first responders selflessly leave their homes and families to fulfill their sworn duties to assist and rescue citizens during catastrophes. Oftentimes, it is not known until the storm has passed and they return home to discover they are now victims...their homes have been heavily damaged or totally decimated and their family is displaced.
We want to send help and brotherly love to our fellow officers when these events occur.
Our goal is to set up a sustainable fund that will always be readily available to send help right away rather than the delay of raising funds only when events occur. Your donation will ensure that we can keep funds on hand in order to send help immediately.
When a catastrophe strikes, we will contact a local Blue Knight chapter or agency department head and inquire as to the immediate needs of an officer who is a victim.
Please consider helping those that are always vigil...those that selflessly go into harm's way.
