Foundation Background & Officers

HISTORY OF OUR FOUNDATION

 

The Grapevine Shield Foundation was established in 2008 by members of the Grapevine Heritage Lions Club to assist family members of Grapevine Police Officers and Firefighters who are injured or killed in the line of duty. A board of directors manages the “Foundation”, and all funds donated will be used to the benefit of police officers' and firefighters' families in a time of need. The "Foundation" has no paid employees and the directors do not receive any compensation.

 




REASON FOR THE FOUNDATION

 

Each and every day, the citizens and businesses of Grapevine enjoy the security provided by the work of our police and firefighters.  Most of the time, we do not give it a second thought, but we know that if we need them, they will be there.  They go to work each day ready to put their safety and lives on the line for us.  When tragedy strikes any of us, they are there to help.  The Grapevine Shield Foundation wants to provide security for them in return.
