Lt. Governor Dan Patrick has launched a CrowdRise drive to raise contributions for the families of the Dallas police officers who were killed last week. While there is state assistance to the families, they are now facing a lifetime ahead without a major provider in the family. In launching the fundraising campaign, Lt. Gov. Patrick made the following statement:
“Our police are always there when we need them. I believe we must be there when they need us. These men left families, wives and children. The day after the shooting, I visited the family of one of the fallen officers and the children were worried about what would happen to them now that there father is gone. They asked if they would lose their home. I told them that would not happen.
“A few thousand Texas police officers protect millions of Texans every day. It is time for all of us to stand tall and demonstrate our support and respect for the law enforcement officers who put their lives on the line for us and our communities.”
The Lt. Governor and his wife, Jan kicked off the campaign with a $5,000 contribution. Contributions in any amount can be made. To access the fundraising campaign, click here.
