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, 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 facilitates an efficient streamlined approach and ease of logistics without corridors of power.

This is non-profit 501(c)3 fundraiser.  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:
