COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Wednesday, Oct. 12, KRDO partnered with Shield 616 to help buy rifle-related gear for deputies and police officers in Southern Colorado.
This year, KRDO was in Pueblo all day at the Weisbrod Aircraft Museum raising funds and accepting generous donations from the community.
Shield 616 confirmed we had met and gone beyond our initial goal of $50,000. By the end of the Protect Our Protectors fundraiser, we had raised $81,665!
KRDO and Shield 616 would like to thank everyone who donated and help spread the word. The fund raised will go directly toward the Pueblo Police Department and the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office.
While the fundraiser is over, people can still donate to Shield 616 any time of the year by clicking here.
