LAFD blogger Brian Humphrey points out a big pancake-breakfast fundraiser coming up Saturday to benefit families of the LAPD victims of the Feb. 7 shootout that left SWAT officer Randal Simmons and three civilians dead and SWAT officer James Veenstra seriously wounded:
7:00 AM to 11:00 AM
At the LAPD & LAFD Recruitment Expo
Crenshaw Christian Center / FaithDome Campus
7901 South Vermont Avenue (map)
Los Angeles, CA 90044
For a simple $10.00 donation, you can provide direct help to the Simmons family and support the recovery of Officer Veenstra, while enjoying a delicious breakfast and the camaraderie of emergency responders.
Turns out the event is also the recruiting-season kickoff for LAFD and LAPD, so if you’ve been thinking about donning a city badge, this would be a good opportunity to learn more about the job.
