Over $4,000 was raised by the MATC Criminal Justice Student Organization (CJSO) to support the Milwaukee Police Officer Support Team (POST).
The CJSO’s fourth annual Chili Cook-off fundraiser was held at the Oak Creek Community Center on March 21.
According to an MATC press release, over 200 people attended the event; the attendees included students and faculty as well as local police and fire departments who donated to the cause. Local restaurants donated chili along with items to be sold in a silent auction.
POST assists the law enforcement community by providing support to those with issues ranging from job stress to traumatic incidents, such as shootings, vehicles crashes and deaths.
The fundraiser was coordinated by MATC police science instructor Jim Dailey and Shannon Fettig, current student and CJSO president.
