Honoring the lives of fallen heroes

September is First Responder Appreciation Month, and since first responders are an important part of Chive Charities’ mission, we’re gearing up to celebrate the everyday heroes our country couldn’t live without.

Here’s Angie, Chive Charities Program Director, at the Canal Shores Invitational with Phil Cline of the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation, and Pat Maloney with the Chicago Fire Department, representing Ignite the Spirit. The Price-is-Right-sized checks they’re holding from Chive Charities will help Chicago-area police officers, firefighters, and their families get through the toughest times in their lives, but they’re just a fraction of the impact these nonprofits have in the community.

Chicago Police Memorial Foundation (CPMF) rallies around the families of Chicago police officers killed or catastrophically injured in the line of duty, as well as current and former CPD officers. They help with school expenses for fallen officers’ kids, replacement vests for working policemen and women, and suicide prevention outreach – really important things most people never worry about. It’s run by veteran law enforcement officers who know what it’s like to risk their lives every day, above and beyond cold coffee and stale donuts.

Chive Charities is honored to grant $10,000 to the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation to help law enforcement families in their time of need.
