DETROIT, MI – Today, Detroit Police Department Chief James Craig, along with representatives of Salvatore Ferragamo and Somerset Collection, and 411 Therapy owner Hassan Fayad, announced a donation to the Fallen and Critically Injured Officers Remembrance Committee.
The donation given to the committee was accepted by the Detroit Public Safety Foundation (DPSF) on behalf of the department and families of the fallen and critically injured officers. The donation will help support the families during a holiday shopping “Shop with a Cop” at Target in December.
“This selfish act has such a positive impact on the families of fallen and critically injured officers,” Chief Craig said. “When you’re talking about those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, you feel like there is more you can always do.”
411 Therapy partnered with Ferragamo and Somerset Collection, hosted a 2018 Autumn/Winter Collection Viewing event in October. As part of the event, 15% of their sales were donate to the fund. The donation was presented today at the Detroit Public Safety Headquarters during a luncheon with some of the families of the fallen and injured present.
“This is a wonderful thing we get to help with, especially around the holidays, and I want all the families to know, the fallen and injured officers will never be forgotten,” Fayad said. “We want everyone to know that Detroit is safe, it’s getting back to where it should be. I love it, and I believe in this city.”
