After nearly a month of your generosity, our In-Vest initiative at Eyewitness News has come to a very successful close.
We've been working with the West Virginia Sheriffs' Association to make sure every deputy in the state is able to wear a bulletproof vest to work everyday.
We've brought you stories of police officers saved by their vests, and others who may have been saved had they been wearing one.
We are very proud to announce that with the support of local businesses, organizations, and community members, $14,705 was raised.
We would like to extend a thank you, as well, to some of our largest contributors.
