**FUNDRAISER AUTHORIZED BY FAMILY OF DEPUTY SANDEEP SINGH DHALIWAL**
We at UNITED SIKHS are deeply saddened by the loss of our Homeland Security Director, Deputy Sandeep Singh Dhaliwal, who was shot while conducting a traffic stop on 9/27/2019. He proudly served Harris County, Texas as a 10 year veteran. In the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Maria, he led a team of UNITED SIKHS volunteers to provide disaster relief to those in need across Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico. In Punjab India, he led the effort to help us provide humanitarian aid for farmers working to survive a record drought.
UNITED SIKHS established this fund for Deputy Singh's wife and three young children to help support their educational needs and to continue his aspirations to uplift humanity and his fellow first-responders. Our legal department is also working with local authorities to ensure the assailants behind this heinous crime will be brought to justice. Please keep following us on social media for the latest updates on his funeral and candlelight prayer vigil.
