Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser
Benefiting the Family of Ron “Mac” McIntyre

American Legion Post 175
168 Park Avenue, Washington, PA 15301

The WPPBF together with Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 95 are holding this pancake breakfast in honor of retired City of Washington Police Officer Ron MacIntyre. In 2006, he was severely injured rescuing residents from the George Washington Hotel fire and was never able to return to the City of Washington as a police officer. Ron passed away unexpectedly Sunday, January 12, 2020, and his passing has deeply impacted his wife Heidi and their two children.

We invite you to come and enjoy breakfast with your family while supporting a law enforcement family in need. All are invited — we are hoping for a great showing of support from throughout the community and surrounding areas. We hope you’ll join us for this event, and show your support for the McIntyre family.

For more information, contact Tim Kreger at 412-874-5827.
 

 

Go Fund Me Fundraiser
Benefiting Detective John Henson of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police

The WPPBF asks that you join us in showing support for Detective John Henson of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police who was recently diagnosed with Lymphoma. John has been a Pittsburgh Police Officer for more than 15 years. During this time, he has selflessly served the city as a Patrol Officer, Narcotics Detective and SWAT Operator.

Detective Henson and his family need help as they navigate this tough time. A Go Fund Me page to help the Heson family has been set up by fellow officer Andrew Miller. Please consider donating and showing your support for this fellow officer in need.

On April 30, 2017, the Western Pennsylvania Police Benevolent Foundation presented Mike Phillips, President of the Washington County Fraternal Order of Police and Sergeant Dave Richards of the North Strabane Police Department with a check for $1,000. The donation, presented by WPPBF President, Rich Griffith, and Treasurer, Tim Kreger, will be used for the creation of a Washington County First Responders Memorial to honor those from Washington County who gave their life in service to others.

Those wanting to donate to this project and help make it a reality can reach out to any WPPBF board member for information on whom to contact.
