PSP Strong ™ Association is a venture that began as a small t-shirt fundraiser to support the families affected by the ambush on the Pennsylvania State Police at Blooming Grove in September 2014. As a result of the generosity and support of the Pennsylvania State Police, their friends and family, and the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, this small fundraiser blossomed beyond anyone’s expectations. After dispersing 100% of the net profits to the families of Cpl. Bryon Dickson and Tpr. Alex Douglass, three of the initial volunteers who began this effort realized that this support for our men and women of the Pennsylvania State Police and their families was unwavering and would continue. Hence, the decision was made to continue the effort to raise funds for the benefit of all the men and women of the Pennsylvania State Police and their families in times of illness, crisis or tragedy.
While we pray that there is never another incident of the type which gave cause for the need to raise funds the way we began, we realize that life is unpredictable and that there will be Pennsylvania State Police members and/or their family members who may need assistance in times of illness, crisis or tragedy and we hope to be there to help.
The message we have received from the inception of the original fundraiser in September 2014 is that the desire to support the Pennsylvania State Police is strong and unwavering throughout the Commonwealth and the nation. We have repeatedly been asked for more offerings. We hope the interest in making contributions to PSP Strong continues and we are now offering the PSP Strong items in exchange for a contribution.
Thank you for your support. God Bless you all and God Bless the Pennsylvania State Police.
DISCLAIMER: For purposes of full disclosure to the public, we would like to note that a limited number of PSP Strong™ T-shirts were left over following the conclusion of the initial fundraising efforts on behalf of the families of Cpl. Bryon Dickson and Tpr. Alex Douglass. Upon providing these remaining T-shirts to contributors, we will, of course, be donating 100% of the net profits therefrom to those families. Our intention is to have further designated fundraisers specifically for the benefit of these families in the future as well. Thank you for your unwavering support.
