Donate to help the family of Ofc. Pat Blanchard.

Donation protected
This fundraiser is for the family of Minot Police Dept. Officer Patrick Blanchard. Pat touched the lives of countless people across this country with his service in the United States Army as a combat veteran and a police officer for the City of Minot.

Those who know Pat will tell you he was a fiercely loyal friend and was someone whom you would be thankful to have in your corner under any circumstance. Like many who give so much of their lives to the service of others, Pat’s internal struggles often went unanswered and unaddressed, ultimately costing him his life.

It is our turn to give back to Pat by unburdening his family and ensuring no financial gaps are left for them to fill in the wake of their tremendous loss.

These funds will be used to directly pay for any uncovered funeral expenses, mortgage payments, and final bills. The remainder will be saved in an appropriate account for Pat’s children.

Pat’s friends and family have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support by the community and are truly thankful for ANY donation you can offer.
