veterans-military-seals In 2013 Cops 4 Causes successful hosted our 2nd annual event that included a 3-month fundraising effort that included our 9/11 Benefit Concert Hosted by Jack Osbourne and Pauley Perrette at the House of Blues.  The evening featured an all-star rock line up, special guest Tuskegee Red Tail Pilot Lt. Col. Bob Friend, WWII Navy Veteran Millie Taylor, Bradley Burlingame and honored legendary Hollywood women including: Connie Stevens, Tippi Hedren, Loni Anderson, Kate Linder and Michael Learned for their years of support for our military service members.

On November 19, 2013 Cops 4 Causes concluded our efforts by sending a delegation consisting of police and fire personnel as an escort our special delivery of 700 Operational Gratitude care packages to our junior enlisted military personnel stationed in Germany. This outreach was part of USO Kaiserslautern’s (Germany) “Thanks for Thanksgiving.”



You can help us in 2015 to send care packages to our troops for the holidays by making a donation of $15 to our R.J. Cottle Returning Heroes Veterans Fund.  Each tax-deductible donation will help send one package to our military members stationed overseas.  Each care package provides our military members needed items for deployments as well as items that remind them of a grateful nation here at home.  The additional funds raised by our efforts help support Cops 4 Causes outreach efforts here at home.
