My name is Coby Frier. i am a business owner and resident of Atlantic City,New Jersey. I have teamed up with PBA Local 24 to raise funds for Josh Vadell,aLocal police officer,father and friend. All funds we raise will go directly to his family via Matt Rogers President of PBA Local 24 to assist Josh and his family with his medical costs and time away from work.  His story is below:

At approximately 2:30 AM on Saturday September 3rd,Three thugs were approached by an Atlantic City police officer.Unprovoked one of these criminals decided to shoot this unsuspecting officer in the head. He is in critical condition and fighting for his life. He is a tough guy and the road to recovery will be long and hard for him and his family. I originally called on the local business community to raise funds amongst ourselves,to help out this officer and wife and young family and then I decided to hopefully go viral with it and raise as much as possible. Atlantic City is a city that media loves to bash...but undersatnd this,we love our police department and our community. we are under siege from so many different factors,but we won't tolerate someone hurting one of our officers. He is a police officer,husband,father and a friend.He is what being a "cop" means!! Please find it in your heart to donate whatever you can. I personally am donating $1000 and hopefully more.  There are so many great causes out there and we are inundated daily with causes we should all support but none as important is this one is right now. We need to send this message locally,nationally and globally for us to continue as a society,we must hold our police to a higher regard and support them in times of need. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE TIMES!!!
