Editor:

This is an open letter to friends of law enforcement,

The Marshall County Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 18 will be conducting a fund-raising campaign by telemarketing, starting April 26, 2021, through May 31, 2021, during the weekday hours of 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

The Fraternal Order of Police is a non-profit organization with members from all the Law Enforcement Agencies in Marshall County working for the mutual benefit of Law Enforcement and the community.

Since its founding in 1959, the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 18 has worked to develop and support projects which contribute to the quality of life for the citizens of the Marshall County Area.

The Fraternal Order of Police sponsors a “Shop with a Cop” program, which unites an underprivileged child from the Marshall County area and a law enforcement Officer.

The officer then takes the child to a local store where funds from this drive are used to purchase much needed clothing and school supplies.

In addition, the Fraternal Order of Police also offers their support to sponsor scholarships for second year law enforcement students at Snead State Community College, Ballistic Vest program for area Agencies and K-9’s, the Sheriff’s Office Brown Elf program to purchase bicycles for area children, back to school supply programs, and helps with various law enforcement and community assistance programs.

None of these projects would be possible without the help of our friendly Marshall County businesses and community members.

Any amount of support is greatly appreciated as the Marshall County Fraternal Order of Police seeks ways to better serve our community.

For further information you cann call: Lodge 18 President Chris Pearce, 256-572-2188 or e-mail the lodge secretary, Rich Bartley: fopal338@gmail.com.
