Vested Interest

  • May 3, 2013
East Bethlehem Police Department’s K9, Thor, will receive a bullet/stab protective vest, thanks to a nationwide animal-related Groupon event. Vested Interest in K9s Inc. was the nonprofit organization and charity partner selected by Groupon Grassroots to participate. The online $10 donation suggested people purchase a Groupon, a tax-deductible donation, through the website, where all money was allocated to purchase ballistic vests for four-legged crime fighters. The nonprofit met its goal of raising $95,000 to provide 100 K9s with ballistic vests in just three days. By the end of the campaign, Vested Interest in K9s had raised $155,375, which will provide 163 K9s with vests in 30 states. With Thor is East Bethlehem police Chief Mark Pompe.
