RE: TELEPHONE FUNDRAISING JULY 28, 2014
To all the Citizens and Businesses of Rockford and the Surrounding Communities, The Police Benevolent and Protective Association of Rockford Unit #6 is currently conducting a fundraising campaign through telephone calls for our Annual Shop With a Cop Program that pairs underprivileged children with police officers to take them on a shopping spree just prior to Christmas. The previous sprees were held at a local department store that has paired with the PBPA to do their part in the community. The funds collected will be also be used for Back to School supplies for underprivileged students for the 2014 – 2015 School Year.
Please contact Terry Peterson or Eddie Torrance if there are negative contacts for this campaign. Their numbers are below.
If you are uncomfortable with our driver picking up the donation, feel free to mail it to our post office box at

Today in the United States, some 900,000 law enforcement officers put their lives on the line for the safety and protection of others. They serve with valor and distinction – and with great success. That protection comes at a price, however. Each year, there are approximately 16,000 assaults on law enforcement officers, resulting in nearly 60,000 injuries. Sadly, over the last decade, an average of 160 officers a year have been killed in the line of duty. And throughout U.S. history, nearly 19,000 law enforcement officers have made the ultimate sacrifice.
The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is dedicated to honoring all of America’s law enforcement heroes – those who have died in the line of duty and those who continue to serve and protect. We invite you to learn more about the heroes of American law enforcement and join us in respecting, honoring and remembering them. Please take the time to visit www.nleomf.org and learn more.
