�Allen Family Fund� Established


In the light of the tragic death of Det. Sgt. James Allen of the Providence Police Department over this past weekend, the Rhode Island State Council of Churches is asking the community to contribute to the �Det. Sgt. James Allen Family Fund� established to assist the family.  We realize many in the community will be looking to lend support during this difficult time for the family.


Contributions can be sent to the Council of Churches.  Checks should be payable to The RI State Council of Churches marked "Allen Family Fund" and mailed to 225 Chapman Street, Suite 303, Providence RI 02905.  Contributions will also be received at any Citizens Bank branch in Rhode Island.


The Providence Police Department has endorsed the establishment of this fund.  In establishing this fund, the Council of Churches and Citizens Bank has committed to donate every dollar received directly to the family.  No fees or administrative expenses will be charged.


The Rev. John E. Holt, Executive Minister of the Rhode Island State Council of Churches and Chairperson of the Station Nightclub Fire Relief Fund, has seen the value firsthand of the establishment of a single fund.  �We learned in establishing a single state-wide fund to assist those affected by the Station fire that donations were collected and moved quickly to meet the need.  We are deeply concerned about the family of Detective Allen.  He gave his life for his community.  We as a community can honor his memory by supporting his family with our prayers and our gifts.  We certainly hope that at a very minimum, we will be able to insure that his two beautiful daughters will be able to stay in their school and receive the education for which their parents worked so hard to provide.�
