How to help officers wounded in Saturday's shootout

Posted at: 10/28/2013 5:39 PM

Several organizations have offered their support for the law enforcement officers wounded in Saturday's shootout.

Started five years ago, the Ten-82 Fund was named after the police radio call "10-82," which means "officer needs help." More information about the fund can be found at www.ten-82.com.

The Village of Los Ranchos has set up an account for Deputy Robin Hopkins and her family. Donations can be made at any Bank of America branch in New Mexico simply by asking for the Los Ranchos Community Trust for Deputy Hopkins.  100% of all donations will be provided to Deputy Hopkins and her family.

The Bernalillo County Sheriff's Deputies Association is collecting cards and gifts for Deputy Hopkins. They say a lot of people are bringing them to the hospital and it's better to bring them to the association office at 423 6th St NW. They will bring them over. 

Jackson's MMA is also raising money in connection with BCSDA. They hope to collect 10,000 dollars by Thanksgiving. Visit giveforward.com and enter "Fighting for Robin."

Donut Mart and the Isotopes have also organized a fund-raiser. Donut Mart will donate $1 from every purchase of any regular-priced dozen donuts this Wednesday through next Wednesday, November 6 to “The One Hundred Club of New Mexico, Inc.” – an entity which provides aid to the spouses and dependents of sworn police and other law enforcement officers and firefighters in New Mexico who lose their lives in the line of duty. In conjunction with Donut Mart, the Isotopes will donate one Reserved Level ticket voucher to any 2014 non-restricted home game for those who purchase a dozen donuts or who make an additional cash donation.  Donation jars will be available on the counters of all Donut Mart stores.
