Press Release: Help Send OPD Officers to DC to Honor Fallen Sister Kerrie Orozco

​The ​First Responders Foundation is ​​honored to be sponsoring the #KerrieOn2​DC/#SupportBlue fundraiser to help raise funds for Omaha Police Officers to honor ​Officer Kerrie Orozco in Washington DC during National Police Memorial Week (May 2016).

We will be hosting a media opportunity tomorrow to announce this project. First Responders representatives as well as OPD officers will be available for personal one on one interviews.

Tomorrow (Friday November 19th)
Omaha Police Mounted Patrol Barn
615 Leavenworth (Enter the South Door)
11:00 am

​The ​F​irst Responders​ Foundation​ is also the creator of ​the grassroots ​Support Blue Campaign and this is a perfect ​opportunity for all Americans to stand with ​law enforcement to show honor and respect to not only the fallen officers but all current first responders as well.

​We are hoping to raise enough funds to send honor guard​ / pipe and drum​ members, close ​OPD ​friends and crew members of Kerrie’s to the memorial​ services​.

Officers have to pay all of their own expenses​ to travel to DC so it’s important to assist them financially ​so they are able to attend the memorial service​s​ as Kerrie’s name will be engraved on the National Police Memorial Wall.

The First Responders Foundation has partnered with the ​following ​organizations to join our efforts in this important endeavor​: ​

Omaha Police Officers Association
Fraternal Order of Police
OPD Welfare & Benefit Association
Black Police Officers Association
Latino Peace Officers Association
Nebraska Association of Women Police Officers
