Many of our wonderful Mix listeners have asked, “How can we help the Kissimmee police officers who lost their lives in the line of duty?” Here’s how you can help…
Last weekend, most of us woke-up to the very sad news that Officer Matthew Baxter and Sergeant Sam Howard of the Kissimmee Police Department had both been shot and sadly, both lost their lives. Both officers were wonderful husbands and fathers. Howard was married to an elementary school teacher and was a Dad to a teenage daughter. Officer Baxter was married to a fellow law enforcement officer and has three children.
There have been several bogus websites setup for their families that have been shut down by Kissimmee PD. However, we spoke to Kissimmee Police Department PIO Stacie Miller this morning and she confirmed that the info below for donations to the two families is correct.
“We ask for you to send donations to the officers families via the SunTrust account set up for them in the name City of Kissimmee – Officer Matthew Baxter and Sergeant Sam Howard account number 1000193639936.”
To all the law enforcement officers and their families, we thank you for putting that uniform on each and every day to keep our great city safe.
