When tragedy strikes, the community always comes together. Whether it is here in Alabama, or across the ocean in Hawaii, people want to know how they can help.
One of our own has been impacted by the Maui fires. Please keep this officer as well as his family in your thoughts and prayers as he returns home to support the community to do some volunteer work.
“To my Hoover PD family, on behalf of myself, my family and the Hawaiian residents impacted by last week’s events thank you from the bottom of my heart. I truly mean it and can’t really conjure up the right words to express my gratitude for those that stepped in to cover shifts, that donated your hard-earned money and goods. I would also like to thank the Hoover Fire Department for lending me equipment to take out there. The abundance of kind words and support I have received from not only fellow first responders, but also the Hoover community, has been overwhelming.”
That’s what family does.
If you would like to help, here is a list of organizations that have been vetted by the Hawaii Attorney General’s Office:https://www.civilbeat.org/2023/08/help-maui-fire-victims-heres-how-you-can-donate/?fbclid=IwAR3SiFHZ88bUVjzqpZK4lJQ1MUlohQkmhLkMeD9TMh4TaQluJb2oU4eJDt0
