Tarrant County Blue announced that it has raised $50,000 to support the family of fallen officer Garrett Hull, an undercover officer with the Fort Worth Police Department who was laid to rest Friday, September 21st. In hopes of doubling this amount, the organization calls to challenge corporations or individuals to match that donation. All monies raised through the organization will be donated to the Hull family, which includes Hulls wife and their two daughters.
It is Tarrant County Blues mission to give 100 percent of the money raised to the next of kin to fallen officers of Tarrant County. With the help of others, we as a country have the ability to honor those who protect us, said Greg Morse, co-founder of Tarrant County Blue and CEO of Worthington National Bank. We especially need to protect the families who have been left behind by the officers that are killed in the line of duty. They work tirelessly to protect us, so we must do the same for them.
Donations may be made by check to Tarrant County Blue, P.O. Box is 1659, Fort Worth, Texas 76101 or online at www.tarrantcountyblue.org.
