Wounded Florence Officers Fund

$34,320 of $40,000 goal

Raised by 472 people in 14 days
At 4pm on Wednesday October 3rd,  three sheriff's deputies with the Florence County Sheriff's Office were serving a warrant when the suspect began shooting. The incident resulted in a multi-hour standoff in which seven officers - 3 deputies and 4 officers with the Florence Police Department - were shot. One officer, Officer Terrence Carraway, was fatally wounded. One female deputy is critically injured. 

This fundraiser is intended to support the six officers who were wounded. 100% of the funds raised will be divided among the injured officers and donated to support their recovery process.

Recovery from a line of duty shooting is a long and difficult process including medical and mental health fees along with countless additional life-altering consequences. 

This fundraiser is endorsed by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers Association, the South Carolina Police Chiefs Association and the South Carolina Law Enforcement Assistance Program. The fundraiser is facilitated by Serve & Connect, a nonprofit (501c3) organization committed to promoting community safety, resilience and well-being through transformative police and community partnerships. Since 2016, Serve & Connect has raised over $300,000 for families of fallen officers in South Carolina. Serve & Connect was founded by Kassy Alia in memory of her late husband, Officer Gregory Alia, who was killed in the line of duty on September 30, 2015.

Hi All! Thank you for the tremendous giving! We have raised nearly $35K for the officers wounded in Florence. This is a small gesture in comparison to all they gave, but we are thankful for the opportunity to show our appreciation in some small way.

The funds will be distributed equally among the six wounded officers and will go to support them in their recovery process. We will be working with the Sheriff and Police department to ensure they go directly to the officers.

Thank you again!

Thank you everyone for your donations! We have almost hit the $5,000. There were 6 officers wounded - what it we surpassed $6,000? This would mean $1,000 for each of the wounded officers. Keep the prayers and shares coming!
