Lee's BBQ is a proud supporter of the Las Animas County Sheriff's Office and Shield 616. During December, January, and February we will be donating .25 cents for each Big Brother sold, supporting the purchase of life-saving vests.
The Las Animas County Sheriff Office, in conjunction with Main Street Auto and Tire and Shield 616 are seeking donations to raise funds to provide each deputy with a Plate carrier Vest with Sheriff Patches, front and Back NIJ Level III rifle rated armor plates, a MICH Ballistic Helmet and upgraded harness (meets NLI Level III and IIIA and US MIL STD 662F standards) and a Police Trauma Kit
In 2017 there were 29 active shooter incidents in the United States. According to the FBI’s Analysis of 160 active shooter incidents between 2000 and 2013, suicide and gunfire exchange with law enforcement end 70% of the events. In 2017, 46 law enforcement officers gave the ultimate sacrifice due to gun shots, 55% of whom were wearing body armor.
The cost to equip each deputy with this vital lifesaving equipment is $1500.00 per Deputy. This is equipment that the Las Animas County Sheriff Office does not have the funds for. Our goal is to raise $18,000.00 to purchase this vital, lifesaving equipment. This donation is tax deductible
We ask for your assistance by making a monetary donation to SHIELD616, c/o New Horizons Foundation, 5550 Tech Center Drive, Suite 303, Colorado Springs, CO 80915. Please include your email address with the donation and indicate that you want the funds to go to Las Animas County Sheriff Office.
