When Greg was killed in 2015, the community rallied around our founder, Kassy, and their 6-month old son, Sal. Using an online fundraiser, over $200,000 was raised to support their family following Greg’s tragic death.
We carry forward this immense kindness through our Tragedy Response Program. Anytime an officer is killed in the line-of-duty or critically injured in the line-of-duty in South Carolina, we offer to facilitate community giving to support the officer and their family and to honor their bravery. Since 2015, we have facilitated over $500,000 raised. We do not keep any of the money raised, and 100% is donated to the officers and their families.
On the morning of July 1, 2020, Deputy Mike Costanzo stopped on Interstate 526 westbound on the Don Holt Bridge to assist a tow truck driver and a disabled motorist. A westbound vehicle struck Deputy Costanzo’s marked patrol vehicle, which then struck other vehicles on scene. Deputy Constanzo remains in critical condition.
