Benny’s Car Wash created the Fallen Officers Fund following the tragic shooting in Baton Rouge in July that left three law-enforcement officers murdered and one critically wounded.
Proceeds from the fund, totaling $44,904.16, were presented to the families of Montrell Jackson, Brad Garafola, Matthew Gerald, and Nicolas Tullier on Friday, September 2, 2016 at Benny’s corporate office.
Benny’s Car Wash, B-Quik, and Oil Change felt connected to each fallen officer through their frequent patronage or partnership in protecting Benny’s seven locations. Being the site of the tragic shootings, Benny’s set out to raise funds for the families of the fallen officers. The Fallen Officers Fund aimed to quickly give support for the families’ immediate needs. Benny’s gave a free wash code for each donation of $10 or more.
“We are proud to have raised such a generous amount for the families of the fallen officers. We appreciate each contribution and ask that you continue to keep these families in your thoughts and prayers,” commented Justin Alford, owner.
