Donations sought for wounded NOPD officer

Updated:

A blood drive for NOPD Officer John Passaro will be held next week.

The Slidell Police Department will sponsor an event next Wednesday  for the 41-year-old Slidell resident, who was shot by a store robber on Feb. 23.

Anyone who wants to donate can show up between 2:00 and 7:00 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church, across from the Slidell PD.

Anyone interested in donating monetarily can visit any Whitney Bank and mention the John Passaro Benefit Account, #46-2187733.  All money donated will go directly to Officer Passaro and his family.

Also, we received this information on an auction to raise money for Officer Passaro:
