Country Financial Representative Michael Harris and Paul Pinnon announced recently that the Carbondale Police Department is a 2019 recipient of a $1,500 Operation Helping Heroes donation.
Harris and Pinnon presented the donation to Chief of Police Jeff Grubbs on June 18.
“We’re happy to support the men and women helping to make Carbondale a safer place for everyone. The donation will help better equip officers with medical supplies in a moment’s notice,” Harris said in a news release.
Country Financial initiated Operation Helping Heroes in 2015 to support non-profit events and programs that benefit active duty service members, veterans and their families. More recently, Operation Helping Heroes expanded to provide support for emergency first responders. In 2019, Country Financial and its financial representatives have already provided more than $50,000 in donations to first responders and service members.
