I got a call from someone raising money for the Deputy Sheriff's Assn. Is there such an organization?
There is an American Deputy Sheriff's Assn. based in Monroe, La. The organization's president, Michael Croft, said there had been fund-raising in Kansas but didn't know if calls were made to the Lawrence area. The association contracted out its fund-raising solicitation, he said.
If you receive a call, the caller will not ask for credit card information and you should not give it if it's requested, Croft said. You can make a verbal pledge and then you will receive in the mail information about the association along with an envelope to mail in a check, Croft said. If you have questions, call (800) 937-7940.
