    Hurricane Matthew Relief Fund


    It has been nearly a week since the destructive winds and rains of Hurricane Matthew made landfall in North & South Carolina. Several rivers in North Carolina have broken out of their banks. Lakes have overflowed, causing levees to break creating devastating flooding. Over 282,000 homes and businesses have been without electricity, with over 3800 displaced families in shelters. President Obama signed a federal disaster declaration for 31 counties Monday night.

    58028045a963d-imageKern County Law Enforcement Foundation has been working closely over the past twenty-nine years with twenty-nine law enforcement agencies by providing and assisting them tools necessary to do their job. Our hearts and prayers go out to all who have lost lives, homes are currently misplaced and are in shelters. As many of you are aware, law enforcement typically will be first to come in contact with victims, and will have to deal with a wide range of life saving and humanitarian situations.

    The Kern County Law Enforcement Foundation is assembled by representatives in law enforcement and business leaders in our community. The foundation feels we have an obligation to help assist with supplies and funds needed in such a time of devastation for our fellow brothers of the badge and the
    communities in which they serve.

    We have partnered with Comprehensive Blood and Cancer Center located at 6501 Truxtun Ave, Bakersfield California 93309, as our designated drop-off location for supplies. Our plan is to fill up two 26-foot storage containers and personally see that they are delivered to Lumberton, North Carolina. All containers and transportation have been generously donated by Price Disposal.


    Evacuees are in need of:

    • Diapers

    • Wipes

    • Cots

    • Blankets

    • Water — (in desperate need)

    • Hygiene Care products

    • Clothing

    • Trash bags

    • Over the counter medications

    • Packaged Non-Perishable food: (chips, nuts, dried fruit, snacks)


    Please note 100% of your donation will go to the victims of Hurricane Matthew

    Randy Raymond, Sr.

    November 10, 2014, we lost a great man in our community. Randy’s dedication to KCLEF and all law enforcement will never be forgotten.


    Randy was a homicide detective with the Kern County Sheriff’s Office and later went into the private sector with Raymond’s Trophies where he brought his family into the business. He has donated and created all our awards since he went into business. He was a board member for four years and donated time to the organization fundraisers. A community activist, he was always ready to help anyone. We all will miss his smiling face and help. Rest in peace.
