On Friday, Northern Energy-AmeriGas will be donating 100% of all dock sales to the family of Broadwater County Sheriff's deputy Mason Moore.
Deputy Moore was shot and killed while on duty near Three Forks on Tuesday.
AmeriGas has purchased 250 blue light bulbs for customers that want to light up their homes or business to show support for law enforcement in honor of Deputy Moore.
Operation Light Up Montana Blue starts Wednesday, May 24th.
Wisper Percival of AmeriGas says Moore’s death hit home, as her husband is in the military.
"I truly feel that law enforcement, our military, and those that are in uniform are what truly make our communities go around, they keep us safe and are always willing to put their life on the line to ensure that everyone around them can go about in a happy and safe manner," she said.
On the 24th customers will be able to donate $5 or more to enter a drawing for 100 gallons of propane...all going towards to the Moore family.
Moore was a husband and father of three children. He was a three-year veteran of the Sheriff’s office.
Many people have asked how they can help the Moore family; here are several options:
A church in Belgrade has created a GoFundMe account: "The Bridge church in Belgrade is raising funds forJodi Moore and her 3 children who have tragically lost their husband and father, Deputy Mason Moore, to Tuesday's senseless shooting. Donations will be used to defray costs of funeral and other related expenses."
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office says that the Montana Sheriffs & Peace Officers Association is also accepting donations to help the Moore family. The JCSO says:
Checks can be mailed to Montana Sheriffs & Peace Officers Association, 34 West Sixth Avenue, Suite 2E, Helena, MT 59601. Those who wish to use credit cards can call our office at (406) 443-5669. Many thanks for the out pouring of love, prayers and support for our law enforcement family. MSPOA is a private non profit 501(c)(3) so donations are tax deductible.
The Broadwater County Sheriff's Office shared the following information:
We at the Sheriff's Office want to thank the community for their love and support shown through this difficult time. I would like to adivse that there is a donation fund for Deputy Moore's family at the Opportunity Bank in Townsend at 416 Broadway Street. Donations can be made to "The Deputy Mason Moore Memorial Fund." If you wish to donate to that fund, it would be greatly appreciated. Again, thanks to all for your support.
The Deer Lodge police department says that several people have reported a man calling area residents and claiming he is raising money on behalf of Moore's family.
The caller, who has an accent, says he is from the Montana Law Enforcement Academy (MLEA) and that he is accepting credit card donations.
The MLEA is not soliciting donations for Deputy Moore.
