Dream Dinners San Marcos and the Escondido Police Officer’s Association (EPOA) are supporting October Domestic Violence Awareness month by helping promote the Laura Perez Memorial Fund to help the family of the fallen officer. Officer Laura Perez was killed in her home by her husband and leaves behind her loving parents, two sisters, a brother, and her 4-year-old daughter Suzeth. Since Laura’s passing, her police friends and colleagues have rallied around her family to help support them after the loss of their primary provider. The EPOA has set up a trust fund for Suzeth to use for education once she is older, since school was very important to Laura. Funds raised will also be used to defray funeral expenses. Donations can be made at www.escpoa.com or directly at any Wells Fargo branch using the account number 1613334562.
