on behalf of Chris Dorman
 FOLCROFT, PA
Officer Chris Dorman, of Folcroft Police department in Delaware County Pennsylvania, was shot while responding to a call of suspected drug activity in the morning hours of June 24, 2016.  Upon making contact with the suspect, a struggle began and the subject started firing his gun,  striking Officer Dorman 7 times.  Chris is a part-time officer with 2 police departments within Delaware County, as well as a volunteer fireman for the past 10 years.  Due to his part time status, he does not receive benefits.  I had the pleasure of working with Officer Dorman at the Delaware County Sheriff's Department during his time there, and he is one of the most honorable, loyal, and generous guys that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, working with, and being friends with.  He is the type of person who would give the shirt off his own back for anyone!!  Officer Dorman has a long road ahead of him in his recovery process and could use all the support and prayers you can spare.  Please help our family in blue support him on his road to recovery. Thank you!!!

A comment on the post saying that workers comp will pay and that this may not be a needed fundraiser. Even if Officer Dorman receives workers comp, there are so many other expenses that need to be considered. If you've ever had a family member hospitalized in the city, then you know that parking, meals, etc add up. Also, family members who help him may not have paid leave. There are many hidden costs when someone has medical issues. Also, Officer Dorman is only part time at Folcroft. He may have other jobs that he is missing and won't be compensated for. I think that someone who puts their life on the line for our safety deserves support, not questioning.

So let's say he does get something to cover his medical. SOWHAT!!! He is a part time Officer (meaning he has to work more than one job to pay bills!!!!). If his Department does pay some kind of salary it will not be at a full time rate. He also loses his income from his other job or jobs. If you don't want to donate don't ! Your speculations are not necessary on here. Just move along!

Wow to negative (or ANYTHING but positive) comment regarding this effort! REGARDLESS of benefits of not, Chris is going to be out of work for quite a lengthy period, and workmans comp often falls short of ones actual salary. This fundraising is BEYOND necessary just to assist with normal day to day expenditures and needs, not to mention bills that won't decrease simply because of any disparity between typical pay and workmans comp! Thanks to Amanda Viglione for initiating these efforts!! xoxoxo to all in uniform!

I donated because I appreciate what you have done every day that you put on the shield. You didn't EXPECT this crazy piece of %$#@& to shoot you. I hope that all your expenses are covered through WC/Union - even if they are, my donation and the purpose of this fund is to show how many people are pulling for you, support you and appreciate you. I hope that there is some or all of this money that can go to something Unexpectedly Nice for You or Your Family!

Who knows what he is or isn't getting. It's a personal choice to donate. I think I can speak for most that the donations are to show appreciation and support. No one is being forced to donate. I hope if my son were in this situation, which I hope he is not, he would be as loved, appreciated, and supported as Chris. It's not about the money. He deserves it. If you don't want to donate, then don't.

He may be recovering well physically, but he has a long road ahead of him mentally. I'm sure he'll have flash backs, nightmares, and so on. It doesn't end here just because he's home. He still needs love, appreciation and support.
