A sense of urgency is something police officers know all about. They often must move quickly on the job, whether responding to an accident or helping a fellow officer in a potentially violent situation.
We also hope you will act with a sense of urgency when it comes to making a donation that actually could save an officer’s life. There is only one week left to give to the “In-Vest” cause, a project that seeks to get bulletproof vests and lifesaving gear into the hands of police officers who need them. The deadline is Wednesday, Nov. 21.
Eyewitness News and the West Virginia Sheriffs’ Association are partnering to challenge area businesses, residents and community leaders to donate to “In-Vest.” Any donation amount will be accepted, but the more you give, the more we can help. For example, a donation of $1,000 literally could buy a life, purchasing a top of the line bulletproof vest for an officer who daily answers the calls and could be placed in harm’s way.
To show how important bulletproof vests and lifesaving gear can be, Eyewitness News Reporter Leslie Rubin is doing a series of stories in which she talks to officers who, without this equipment, may have never gone home again to be with their families.
Act now and help protect the protectors. Donations can be made at any City National Bank in the entire state, or you can drop off or mail donations to our Charleston studio (WCHS TV, 1301 Piedmont Road, Charleston, WV 25301) or to our Huntington studio (WCHS TV, 1002 Fourth Ave., Huntington, WV 25701). Checks should be made payable to “In-Vest.”
