Midland Trust is proud to support the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation.
Bulletproof vests worn by police officers need to be replaced every five years. And, if a bullet pierces a vest, it is automatically unusable. These vests are expensive, and many officers must buy their vests and other equipment. That’s why the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation created Get Behind the Vest. This program ensures that every police officer is protected.
In memory of Officer Ella French, who died in the line of duty recently protecting Chicago, Midland donated over $1,000 to Get Behind the Vest. In the past Midland has supported this great organization with donations of over $5,000.
We should never forget the relentless and never-ending service that our police departments give on our behalf. We must continue to support our police with the day-to-day difficulties they face to protect us. Midland cannot thank Officer French for her contributions in person, but we can continue to honor her memory and dedication to the job. We hope to move forward towards finding ways to get along and live in peace.
