2 Dallas Police Officers were shot on April 24th and their families need our support
raised by 86 people
Officers Crystal Almeida and Rogelio Santander of the Dallas Police Department were shot when responding to a request for support at Home Depot on April 24, 2018. A civilian, Scott Painter, was also shot.
Tragically, Officer Santander succumbed to his injuries the following day. Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings announced that he passed away at 8:11 a.m. on April 25, 2018. Officer Santander was a three-year veteran of the Dallas PD.
Officer Almeida remains in critical condition. "We are happy to report that Officer Crystal Almeida and our loss prevention officer, Scott Painter, are making remarkable recoveries," Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall told reporters.
The city of Dallas has rallied around these officers, and Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation is asking you to help support Officers Almeida and Santander and their families during this difficult time. All donations will go directly to the officers' families to assist with medical expenses and end-of-life expenses for Officer Santander, and Mightycause has waived platform fees for this fundraiser to ensure that the families receive your full donation.
