Cookeville Human Fund

By way of introduction, my name is Marc deClaire.  I’m a veteran Cookeville police officer and reside in Putnam County. 

As a local police officer, there are many times I will run across someone that needs some help. Things such as a need for a hotel room, food/baby food, diapers, gas, minor car repair, prescription drugs, eye glasses, hygiene products, etc.

This fund has been set up to help people that are in a critical bind.   Most of the time I will encounter them on duty or when a fellow officer/entity reaches out to me.  This campaign is designed for an immediate response to a short term need This is an innovative approach to community problem solving without corridors of power.

This is non-profit 501(c)3 fundraiser which falls under the umbrella of the Cookeville Police Athletic League,  but all donations go directly to the Cookeville Human Fund.  Recipients will not receive cash unless absolutely necessary and they are carefully vetted.  People that receive help must be in Putnam County and at my discretion or the designated officer. 

Please support the local fundraiser by donating to the Cookeville Human Fund by visiting: 

Direct donation to any One Bank; (under Cookeville Human Fund) which is under the umbrella of the Cookeville Police Athletic League.

Checks can also be mail or delivered Cookeville Police Department, 10 E. Broad St., Cookeville, TN. 38501
