Monroe County Sheriff's Department Fundraiser:

Even first responders are not immune to the horrors of tragic life events. The Monroe County Sheriff's Office is saddened to learn of a residential structure fire that has directly imapcted a member of the Monroe County Sherrif's Office family. Reserve Deputy Jason Miller, his wife and two teenage children were left with nothing but the clothes on their back, after the fire caused tremendous damage to their home, deeming it a total loss. 
Although the Miller family was insured, they are facing a long road ahead to begin replacing the essentials they need such as clothing, bedding, and other everyday items. The Monroe County Sheriff's Office will be accepting donations in the form of gift cards or cash, if you are able to help the Miller family. Donations can be mailed to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office at 301 North College Avenue Bloomington, IN 47404 or they can be dropped off in person Monday-Friday from 8:00AM-6:00PM. Any donation will help.
