Helping an officer in need

A Kansas City Police officer and his family lost nearly everything Sunday when a fire destroyed their Northland home. In addition to the house itself, the home's contents were destroyed, including the cars in the garage. The officer, his wife, their four school-age children and pet dog all escaped uninjured, but with little more than the clothes on their backs.

A fund has been established at the Kansas City Police Credit Union to help the family get back on their feet. If you'd like to donate, simply go to any KCPCU branch (here are the locations) and say you'd like to give to the Wells Family Benefit Account.

Thanks for your support.
