Each day men and women heroically risk their lives for others by working in jobs of service. Constable Daniel Woodall demonstrated this heroism every day in the past eight years that he served with the Edmonton Police Service. Constable Woodall was killed in the line of duty on June 8. To honor his bravery two fundraisers have been started to aid Constable Woodall’s wife and their two children. These fundraisers for Constable Daniel Woodall provide a way for the community to show their appreciation for the protection that the Edmonton Police Service provides everyday.
Edmonton Police Sergeant Cory Kerr created a GoFundMe.com campaign that has raised more than $80,000 in six days to help Constable Woodall’s family. Donations will continue to be accepted at the online fundraiser until midnight on Thursday, June 18. Funds raised by this online effort are subject to small fees from the website’s administrators. Anyone that would like to ensure 100 percent of their donation goes to the D. Woodall Family Fund can make a donation at any branch of Royal Bank of Canada.
There is also an online t-shirt sale happening now until July 10th. The shirts are printed with the hashtag #EPSSTRONG and a black and blue ribbon, which symbolizes the sacrifice Constable Woodall has made and the rest of officers of the Edmonton Police Service that risk their lives daily. Proceeds from the shirt sales will also go to the family of Constable Woodall.
