CINCINNATI — Generous members of the community helped WCPO and a team of volunteers raise over $20,500 for The Shield Ohio through a Monday evening telethon.

The Shield provides emergency funds to families of officers in southwest Ohio who are “critically injured or killed in the line of duty.” The organization assists families with costs related to travel, hotels or costs associated with missing work to care for a loved one.

Anyone who missed the telethon can donate to The Shield through PayPal or by sending a check or money order to the following address:

  • The Shield
  • 7149 Ridge Road
  • Cincinnati, OH 45237

Make checks payable to The Shield, Inc.
