Update June, 11, 2017:
We want to take a moment to update everybody on how things stand with the Fundraiser for S/A Walter’s family. We are still in the planning stages. A venue has been chosen, but we are waiting on them to confirm before we pick a date and release those details. The artwork for the coins and shirt are being done now and will be approved by the family soon. As soon as the artwork is approved we will start pre-selling them on our website.
As for donations, we can not express enough gratitude for the generous outpouring of donations. We have already provided the family with some much needed funds and are about to do so again. The support from the community has been overwhelming.
We are still collecting donations so if you wish to donate feel free to check out how at the below link. This link is also updated with the latest on where things stand with the fundraiser, shirts and coins. Thanks again for all your support.
There have been many questions about how people can help the family of VSP Special Agent Michael Walter. Currently, the VSPA and MRPES are accepting donations. We are in the beginning stages of planning a fundraiser and possibly selling t-shirts and challenge coins. Anything that we do will be coordinated with the family.
At this time they are overwhelmed with what has occurred and planning the funeral. Thus any fundraising we do outside of donations will not be until well after the funeral. If you would like to donate money now you can go to the below PayPal button or mail a check to the below address. Please note on your donation that it is for Special Agent Walter.
