Officers fundraise for brother in need, Officer Patrick Perkins - WSLS 10 NBC in Roanoke/Lynchburg Va

Officers fundraise for brother in need, Officer Patrick Perkins

Posted: Updated:

The police force is banding together Wednesday to help out a fellow officer raise money to restore his home.

In July of this year, the city of Roanoke was hit with damaging flood waters in the downtown area.

WSLS news coverage brought to light those who were hardest hit, one of whom was Officer Patrick Perkins of the Roanoke City Police Department. As his home was flooding, Officer Perkins had to leave his family to help protect others in our community who were in need. Officer Perkins continues to protect and serve while not yet in a position to move back into his home due to extensive repair costs.

Chick-fil-A in Roanoke has agreed to host a "SPIRIT NIGHT" to support Officer Perkins.

10% of ALL proceeds will be donated directly to the OFFICER PERKINS RELIEF FUND which is managed by the Roanoke City Police Department

If you would like to donate, pick up a flyer with an volunteer at the store and simply eat a meal from chick-fil-a.

WSLS's Rachel Lucas will be at the fundraiser and will continue to keep you updated.
