Thank you to the numerous volunteers and law enforcement officers who work tirelessly to prepare for this event, to all who help raise money for the Union County Crime Stoppers' one and only fundraiser of the year.
Proceeds help to provide rewards towards anonymous tips given throughout the year that help to enable law enforcement to solve crimes in Union County.
Thank You to our Volunteers
Union County Crime Stoppers is a 501(c)3 organization operating solely by volunteers. There are no paid employees.
They begin days ahead to make sure everything is purchased and set up ready to go the day of the barbeque. They come one day prior to begin preparing slaw and beans. On the morning of the event they show up early to get everything ready to go out the door by lunch time. There are also teams of police officers that deliver take-out meals to area businesses who can't make it to the Ag Center for lunch.
We couldn't do it without all the volunteers who work tirelessly to make the event a success! Special thank you the Union County Sheriff's Office, Monroe, and Marshville Police Departments and many more community members.
