NJ PBA Reaches Into
Survivor & Welfare Fund
To Support Dallas Officers

Law Enforcement Officers from NJSPBA to drive hospitality trailer to Dallas to help on the ground

(Woodbridge, NJ – July 9, 2016)-  NJSPBA President Patrick Colligan today announced that the union representing 33,000+ law enforcement officers from through New Jersey will make a $10,000 donation to support the men and women of law enforcement who were victims of the shooting attack on July 7 in Dallas, Texas.

“Law enforcement will continue to stand together in these difficult and dangerous times.  The donation to our brothers and sisters in Dallas is the right thing to do and we hope that other organizations throughout the country will show support for these fallen officers and their families,” said NJSPBA President Patrick Colligan.

The donation will come from the NJSPBA Survivor & Welfare Fund, a non-profit organization established by the NJSPBA to support law enforcement officers during difficult times.  Funds in the NJSPBA Survivor & Welfare Fund, a tax exempt 501(c)3, are donated by law enforcement officers, corporate donors, PBA locals, businessmen and residents.

In addition to the donation, the NJSPBA will be dispatching the organization’s hospitality trailer to Dallas, Texas in order to assist law enforcement officers and their families.  The NJSPBA trailer is traditionally used to support law enforcement activities and events in New Jersey.

“We continue to get calls from our members looking for ways to help in Dallas, Texas.    Pat Colligan and I will be traveling to Dallas and a handful of additional members will volunteer time to drive the PBA’s trailer to Texas to support law enforcement and their families,” added NJSPBA Executive Vice President Marc Kovar.
