National radio talk show host Mike Gallagher is pleased to announce the generous support from Bell Helicopter for his non-profit, Gallagherâ€™s Army: Fallen Officer Fund. This donation reinforces the two entitiesâ€™ dual commitment to supporting the nationâ€™s law enforcement officers.
Bell Helicopterâ€™s $25,000 donation will help support the families of police officers killed in the line of duty.
â€œBell Helicopter has graciously joined our efforts to help our local heroes who put their lives at risk on a daily basis to fight crime,â€ said Mike Gallagher. â€œBell Helicopter has a wonderful track record in supporting the missions of law enforcement globally and giving back to communities across the nation.Â I appreciate their support for families of fallen police officers.â€
â€œAt Bell Helicopter we remain committed to the law enforcement market, Gallagherâ€™s Army and the Fallen Officer Fund provides us with a conduit to give back to the many men and women in uniform serving in our nationâ€™s state and local law enforcement agencies,â€ said Larry D. Roberts, senior vice president, Commercial Business.
â€œAs an industry-leading producer of civil aircraft, we specifically recognize the contributions made by all airborne law enforcement first responders to the security of America,â€ said Roberts. â€œWe are honored to play a small role in helping them accomplish their noble mission and I would like to thank these men and women for their service on behalf of myself and all the employees at Bell Helicopter.â€
The Gallagherâ€™s Army: Fallen Officer Fund, based in Dallas and New York, was founded by Mike Gallagher and inspired by the giving spirit of his late wife, Denise Gallagher, to meet the immediate needs of U.S. police officer families when an officer has been killed in the line of duty.
The fund provides financial assistance to officer families when they need it most â€“ as soon as a tragedy happens â€“ without having to wait for weeks or months for other more formal assistance to become available. Gallagherâ€™s Army: Fallen Officer Fund is committed to helping police officer families all over the nation in their time of need.
