Will County Sheriff Mike Kelley and the Will County Sheriff’s Office are pleased to announce that they have established a partnership with United Way of Will County. By partnering with United Way, and being under the umbrella of their tax exempt status, the Sheriff’s Office Public Safety Foundation will now be able to raise supporting funds for extra programs that fall outside of the general budget. One hundred percent of the funds donated will go directly to the Will County Sheriff Public Safety Foundation to support public safety initiatives, which will allow the Sheriff’s Office to better serve the residents of Will County.
A general donation can now be made to the foundation through credit card or checks.
To donate by check: make payable to United Way of Will County and in the memo section write Will County Public Safety Foundation.
To donate by credit card: visit www.uwwill.org/DonateNow.aspx. In the comment section write Will County Public Safety Foundation.
If you wish your donation to be directed to a more specific public safety program, please feel free to specify on your donation one of the following programs:
1) Canine Operations and Care
2) Elderly Services (TRIAD, Senior fingerprinting)
3) Public Safety (AED’s, training, etc.)
4) Youth Services (Shop with a Cop, Hidden in Plain Sight Trailer, Child Fingerprinting)
5) Will County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition (Education, Forums, Community Events, etc.)
The Sheriff’s Office would also like to remind residents that the Will County Sheriff’s Office never solicits funds over the phone or through the mail. This initiative will be handled solely through person-to-person donations. -end-
