Sheriffs Adopting Sheriffs Relief Project Partners
The Sheriffs Adopting Sheriffs relief project is designed to help Sheriffs employees and their families who have been personally impacted by this natural disaster.
The Badger State Sheriffs' Association (BSSA) President Nate Dreckman said, "The Sheriffs Adopting Sheriffs program is designed to bring a little direct relief to those Sheriff’s employees who leave their families during times of major emergencies and go to work helping others."
According to BSSA Executive Director, Dean C. Meyer said, "The need following Hurricane Ida is so great in Louisiana, this year’s program efforts are being expanded to give the citizens, businesses, and other organizations the opportunity to participate and help out."
"There are nearly 5.8 million people living in our great State. Think what could be raised if every adult could walk into their County Sheriff’s Office and donate just $5. Think what could be raised if every business in the State sent a check for just $25 to their County Sheriff. Think what could be raised if every type of civic organization in the State made a $50 contribution to the Sheriffs Adopting Sheriffs program."
