An uptick in donations since President Trump took office has allowed the Border Patrol Foundation charity to deliver $1 million in financial aid grants for agents and their families since its creation in 2009.
“In the last year and a half, I think as Border Patrol gets a lot more attention in the news, people are starting to look at ways that they can help the agents when they need it,” said BPF Executive Director Shannon Staples, a former agent.
The article goes on to state the following:
In response to the surge in donations, the foundation has been able to give more to the nearly 20,000 Border Patrol agents in the country, including in cases of on- and off-duty deaths, injuries, illnesses, family medical emergencies, special circumstances, and scholarships.
True honor Border Patrol Foundation could attend this event and support our surviving families. Huge thank you to @realDonaldTrump @POTUS for your support our our fallen heroes families! https://t.co/PJJYZr2vmN
