FOP begins annual fundraising drive

Monday, May 13, 2024

The Putnam County Fraternal Order of Police is beginning its annual fundraising drive with calls to solicit donations.

The 2024 drive will run from Monday, May 20 through roughly July 15.

Organizers would like Putnam County residents to know that no in-person solicitation will take place without prior telephone arrangements.

All solicitors will show ID upon request and will be in clearly-marked FOP shirts.

Locall FOP President Darrel Bunten noted that the solicitation will be performed by Richard Brunson.

Money collected will go to a number of FOP-supported causes, most notably the Shop-with-a-Cop program, which pairs students with police officers for back-to-school shopping.

Other supported programs include a continuing education program and officer assistance for law enforcement-related training and equipment.

Anyone not contacted who would like to support the Putnam County FOP may mail a contribution to FOP, P.O. Box 934, Greencastle, IN 46135 or drop off at the Greencastle Police Department, 600 N. Jackson St., Greencastle, during regular business hours.

Anyone with questions may contact either Bunten or FOP Vice President Ed Wilson at GPD, 653-2925.
