Raising Money for State Trooper's Memorial
Wisconsin State Trooper Trevor Casper is being honored after being killed in a shootout with an armed robbery suspect in March of 2015.
Trooper Casper lost his life not too far from a Pick-N-Save in Fond du Lac.
Now the grocery is raising money for a memorial in place of a make shift one that has been constantly maintained nearby.
Employees are raising funds to place a bench at the site along with a plaque and trooper Casper's name.
The idea kicked off Saturday with customers making their donations at the cash register.
Off duty state patrol officers have been helping out the cause by signing up for shifts to bag and carry groceries for customers.
“It's really important for us to be able to interact with our community members, to see the positive support that we have. As a state patrol agency we don't often times get the opportunity to meet with our community members in this type of a fashion. So it really was a great experience,” says a state patrol officer.
The fundraiser will go on through November 26th.
Stop by one of the Pick-N-Save's in Fond du Lac to make a donation.
