A breakfast benefit to raise money for three law enforcement families with large medical expenses took place at the Moose Lodge in Waterloo, Iowa.

Various officials, including police officers, sheriff’s deputies, and emergency workers, served as waiters during the benefit, which featured a waffle breakfast, bake sale and silent auction.

Almost $5,000 was raised.

“These are the people that are willing to sacrifice for you and when they are in need and they are in trouble so often you don’t hear much about that. You know we expect them to be there when you call 911, and we expect them to show up, we expect them to be able to help you. This is a way for us to reach back and to help them when they are in their time of need,” said Black Hawk Co. Sheriff Tony Thompson.
