POTATO FUND RAISER
August 29, 2018
On September 20, 2018 Coastal Bend Crime Stoppers sold baked potatoes as a fundraiser. We are pleased to declare the fundraiser a huge success!
Coastal Bend Crime Stoppers would like to thank Elder's Country Market for cooking all of the potatoes; VFW for letting us use your facilities for the fundraiser, and helping us put the condiments into the bags; Michelle Trevino, Johnny Carbajal, and Chief Bridge for lending us coolers; everyone who delivered potatoes to businesses, or helped in other ways; and to everyone who bought a ticket. We hope you enjoyed your meal.
Funds raised will go towards our Safe School program and the scholarships we offer students who either plan to go into law enforcement, or have a parent/grandparent as an active or retired Texas peace officer.
