DALLAS (Aug. 29, 2016) — Just Brakes Total Car Care has donated $13,250 to the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation to benefit the families of five Dallas Police Department and DART Police Department officers killed in the July 7 ambush shooting.
“Like others in our community, we were deeply saddened by the tragic events that took place last month. As proud members of this great community, our company was moved to do something for the families of the fallen officers,” said Bill Ihnken, CEO of Dallas-based Just Brakes.
“We were proud to partner with several of our vendors, including NAPA, JS Products, Hunter Engineering, Pennzoil, G&K and Ed Jones, to put together a donation to benefit the families,” he said.
“It's truly a small gesture when compared to the sacrifice these officers made, but our hope is that it helps make things a little easier for the families. We would also like to express our gratitude to the entire Dallas Police Department for their service and all that they do.”
Sarah Hamp, vice president of marketing for Just Brakes, and Tom Balash, vice president of sales, presented the donation to Demetrick Pennie, Dallas Police Department sergeant and president of the Fallen Officer Foundation, and Armando Tijerina, Dallas Marshal and director of the Fallen Officer Foundation, at the Just Brakes shop on Lemmon Avenue in Dallas.
