By Sally Dagna, Mill Creek Police Foundation President, August 19, 2020.
On July 16th the Mill Creek Police Foundation came alongside the Bothell Police Department to raise money for the family of Officer Jonathan Shoop who was killed in the line of duty on July 13th.
We had a goal of raising $25,000 and put the word out on our Facebook page. Within an hour local radio personalities announced our fund raiser on air and a deeply compassionate community responded.
Within three weeks our goal was not only met, but exceeded!
Initially, we were excited to deliver donations of $20,000 collected from this fund raiser, but on August 10th we were beyond thrilled that we were able to present Bothell Police Sergeant Stapleton and Officers Martin and Cooke with a check for another $15,000, bringing the total donations to over $35,000!
A huge thank you goes out to everyone who supported the effort and made it such a huge success!
Mill Creek Police Foundation is committed to supporting our local officers and their families. We are currently looking for volunteers who have the same passion. Interested parties should reach out to us at MillCreekPoliceFoundation.com.
We would love to answer your questions, and provide you with more information about our organization.
