Greenville County Deputies’ Wounded and Recovering Fund
Wounded and Recovering Fund was started by the Greenville County Deputies in response to an uptick
in service-related injuries that have occurred among members of law enforcement
in the past several years. Attorney Josh Christian of
Christian & Davis LLC is one of two civilians on the Wounded and Recovering Fund’s Board
of Directors and has assisted the organization in putting together yearly
fundraisers and deciding how the organization will allocate funds to people
in need. Since its genesis, the organization has given more than $25,000
to members of law enforcement and their families in times of need.
The Wounded and Recovering Fund was set up in order to help reduce the
financial hardship members of law enforcement experience after being injured
in the line of duty. Proceeds raised by the organization go toward helping
injured officers and their families continue to pay for medical expenses,
therapy, and other health-related costs. Gifts are also intended to help
ensure that members of law enforcement and their families experience as
little additional financial strain as possible due to time spent out of
work, which, in some circumstances, can last months to years and create
serious monetary crises.
