Our law enforcement officers make it their mission to serve and protect others daily, and they deserve protection, too.
With Thanksgiving just a few days away, Eyewitness News hopes you will join in our efforts to give back, by helping provide potentially life-saving protection to these brave men and women.
There are three days left to give to the “In-Vest” cause, a project that seeks to get bulletproof vests and lifesaving gear into the hands of police officers who need them. The deadline is Wednesday.
People from all walks of life can give to "In-Vest." On Monday, Patrick Lamb presented a $100 check to WCHS TV General Manager Harold Cooper for the project on behalf of the Knights of Columbus.
Eyewitness News and the West Virginia Sheriffs’ Association are partnering to challenge area businesses, residents and community leaders to donate to “In-Vest.” 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 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.
Act now and help protect the protectors. Donations can be made at 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.”
