Your generosity could help save the life of a police officer.
Eyewitness News is partnering with the West Virginia Sheriffs' Association to challenge area businesses and community leaders to donate to our “In-Vest” cause. The goal is to get bulletproof vests and lifesaving gear into the hands of police officers who need them.
To show how important bulletproof vests and lifesaving gear can be, Eyewitness News Reporter Leslie Rubin is doing a series of stories in which she talks to officers who, without this equipment, may have never gone home again to be with their families.
Any donation amount will be accepted, but the more you give, the more we can help. For example, a donation of $1,000 literally could buy a life, purchasing a top of the line bulletproof vest for an officer who daily answers the calls and could be placed in harm’s way.
To donate, you can go to any City National Bank in the entire state, or you can drop off or mail donations to our Charleston studio (WCHS TV, 1301 Piedmont Road, Charleston, WV 25301) or to our Huntington studio (WCHS TV, 1002 Fourth Ave., Huntington, WV 25701). Checks should be made payable to “In-Vest.”
