National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day was Thursday, Jan. 9. In an effort to focus community attention on local heroes, TLC, a Division of Fibre Federal Credit Union, celebrated Law Enforcement Appreciation during the first full week of January. All week, TLC accepted donations for the Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation.
On Jan. 9, branch staff delivered “copcakes” to all local police, sheriff and state patrol offices as a token of appreciation for the officers’ service. For a small donation, staff members opted to wear “Back the Blue” badge stickers and dressed in black and blue clothing.
At the end of the week, TLC raised a total of $250 for the Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation. The foundation pays for the costs incurred by a line of duty death memorial service, including those associated with the planning, preparation and execution of the ceremony, and provides support for the survivors of a fallen officer.
TLC, a Division of Fibre Federal Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative. In 2015, Fibre Federal Credit Union acquired TLC and expanded to 15 branches serving over 100,000 members. Fibre Federal and TLC serve Clatsop, Lincoln, Tillamook and Columbia Counties in Oregon and Cowlitz, Pacific and Wahkiakum Counties in Washington.
