The PORAC/POREF Wildfire Relief Fund – Donate Today!

The Law Enforcement Family stands proud and always stands united. As the wildfires ravage our Northern and Southern California communities, there is another community that needs our support. Many fellow PORAC members have been deeply impacted by the California wildfires.

Even while faced with the worry of their families being evacuated or worse, dealing with the loss of a home, these brave members of our family continue to serve the communities they swore an oath to protect. Please join PORAC, the PORAC Chapters and Associations, along with the aid of C.A.H.P. Credit Union and donate today.

Be the protector of their peace of mind and make a contribution today
