JOPLIN, Mo. — The Joplin FOP (Fraternal Order of Police) have an officer benevolent for those families affected by the horrible tragedy last Tuesday when three officers where shot, two fatally wounded. The third remains in a Joplin ICU.

Over the weekend an anonymous $25,000 donation was logged putting them over the original goal set online.

However individuals can also drop off donations at the Joplin Police Dept, 303 E 3rd, to avoid GO FUND ME fees.
