TORNADO RELIEF: The Police Benevolent Foundation aids officers

MCDONOUGH, Ga. – The Police Benevolent Foundation and the Tennessee Police Benevolent Association are ready to help law enforcement officers and their families who may be affected by the tornadoes that hit Tennessee. Unlike most people, a police officer’s job can never really be put on hold when disaster strikes. They are required to work through the worst conditions and be ready and able to help others. 

The Police Benevolent Foundation was initially created in 2005 to aid officers and their families after Hurricane Katrina. Many years later, the foundation is still going strong and is ready to help officers affected by the tornadoes in Tennessee.

The Police Benevolent Foundation has established the “TN Tornadoes Relief Fund” to aid these officers during their time of need. Donations can be made through the Police Benevolent Foundation’s website or by clicking here:

Law enforcement officers that need financial help to rebuild or recover from the tornado damage are asked to call SSPBA at 1-800-233-3506, extensions 143 or 725. Officers may also email information about the damage or help they need to or The Southern States PBA and Police Benevolent Foundation will work to ensure that all money received through the “TN Tornadoes Relief Fund” goes to the intended purpose of helping officers and their families rebuild. 

The Police Benevolent Foundation is a tax-deductible 501(c)(3) organization established by the Southern States Police Benevolent Association (SSPBA) in 2005. Established in 1987, SSPBA has been serving its membership for over 30 years. SSPBA is not a union. It is an independent association with no national or international affiliations.
