About the Montgomery County Hero Fund
The Montgomery County Hero Fund is a 501 (C)(3) corporation that was founded in 2012 by Sharon and Sean E. Cullen in response to the murder of Officer Brad Fox of the Plymouth Township Police Department and United States Marine Corps (Ret.). The purpose of the fund is to provide immediate and ongoing relief and services to any Law Enforcement Officer, Military Personnel, Firemen, Paramedics and/or first Responders or their loved ones as a result of tragedy on duty in or in service of the people of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
Through the hard work of Chief Thomas O’Donnell, of the Norristown Fire Department, and Officer Brian Saxon, of the Norristown Police Department, in a little less than a month and after the Hurricane this fall we were able to bring together about 1000 people in support of Officer Fox’s Family at the Elmwood Park Zoo. However, events like this take time and planning and it became very clear we needed to harness the truly generous and good nature of the people of Montgomery County and their respect for Law Enforcement, Military Personnel, Firemen, Paramedics and/or First Responders in case it is immediately needed in an emergency.
The Mission of the Montgomery County Hero Fund is to immediately guarantee that the acts of a Hero will never be forgotten and that we will always rise to the challenge of making sure sacrifice in the line of duty will never be in vain and that Law Enforcement Officers, Military Personnel, Firemen, Paramedics and/or First Responders and their loved ones will be protected and cared for in the event of tragedy.
We wanted to thank all Members of Law Enforcement, Military Personnel, Firemen, Paramedics and First Responders for your service and assure you that we stand ready if needed. May God bless all of you and keep you safe in your duties.
With Gratitude for Your Service,
Montgomery County Hero Fund
