Breakfast benefit raises money for families of law enforcement

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The Black Hawk County law enforcement community came together Sunday to help some of their own.

A breakfast benefit brought hundreds to the Moose Lodge in Waterloo.

It raised money to help three families of law enforcement officers with extreme medical expenses.

Police officers, sheriff's deputies, and other emergency workers worked as waiters and servers.

Besides a full waffle breakfast, there was also a bake sale and a silent auction.

"These are the people that are willing to sacrifice for you and when they are in need and they are in trouble so often you don't hear much about that. You know we expect them to be there when you call 911, and we expect them to show up, we expect them to be able to help you. This is a way for us to reach back and to help them when they are in their time of need," said Black Hawk Co. Sheriff Tony Thompson.

The event raised nearly $5,000.  

Donations are still being accepted at the Black Hawk county Sheriff's Office.
