Fibre Federal Honors Local Heroes Ahead of Law Enforcement Appreciation Day
January 26, 2021
Every year, on Jan. 9, citizens and communities across America show their support for local police during National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. In an effort to focus community attention on local heroes, Fibre Federal Credit Union and TLC, a Division of Fibre Federal Credit Union, celebrated Law Enforcement Appreciation Day during the first full week of January.
Throughout the week, the credit union collected $521.78 in donations for the Behind the Badge Foundation of Washington, a resource providing comprehensive support to Washington state’s law enforcement agencies, families, and communities after an officer has died or suffered serious injury in the line of duty.
Fibre and TLC also raised $225 in funds for the Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation, which pays for the costs incurred by a line-of-duty death memorial service, including those associated with the planning, preparation, and execution of the ceremony, and provides support for the survivors of a fallen officer.
On Jan. 8, branch staff delivered “copcakes” to all local police, sheriff, and state patrol offices as a token of appreciation for their continued service. In exchange for a small donation, staff members opted to wear “Law Enforcement Appreciation” badge stickers to show their support.
