Benicia Poa
on behalf of Jourdan Duncan
 BENICIA, CA
The Benicia Police Officers' Association has set up this go fund me page to collect donations and fundraise on behalf of Jourdan Duncan.  

Jourdan is an impressive 18 year old who walks almost 5 hours a day to and from work so he can raise money to fix his car and pay for college.  Jourdan also has aspirations of becoming a CHP officer one day.

Benicia PD Corporal Kirk Keffer met Jourdan walking alone one night and learned about his story.  Impressed with Jourdan's work ethic and commitment to his dreams, Cpl. Keffer reached out to the Benicia Police Officers' Association and asked if there was something they could do to help out this young man. The BPOA agreed to purchase a bicycle for Jourdan.  

Since this meeting the Benicia Police Department and Police Officers' Association has been approached by many community members from across the United States offering to donate to Jourdan and help him make his dreams a reality.  Jourdan and Cpl. Keffer's story has gone viral and touched many across our Country.  Please consider making a donation to Jourdan.  

See the links below for more on Jourdan's story.

Thank you to everyone who has donated to help Jourdan. We have been overwhelmed with the response from the community and how quickly our initial goal of $5,000 was reached. We continue to receive interest in helping out Jourdan. We raised the goal to $10,000 and quickly surpassed the goal with continued donations coming in. We have now raised the goal to $50,000 with hopes that Jourdan can use this gift to help him achieve his dreams beyond fixing his car. Fund his educational aspirations and dreams. Again thank you from the Benicia Police Officers' Association.

This touch my heart. That a young man so young, cares, and is responsible. He did't quit his job or give up. God Bless you. Thank you Benicia Police Dept. One act of kindness goes a long way. Any act of kindness wheter it small or large, doesn't go unnoticed. Have faith, always know that God is with you and he will never leave you.
