A group of community members have created an online fundraiser for the family of Deputy Jake Allmendinger who was killed while on a call in the Bridger Mountains on October 19th.

Organizers have a unique goal: they are hoping to get donations from 100,000 people.

“We want everybody to feel like they can contribute and make a difference,” said Tony Johnson, one of many team members who are helping with fundraising efforts.

If you can't help out financially, organizers are hoping people will simply share the link to the fundraiser with their family, friends and coworkers to help spread the word. You can access the fundraiser by using the button directly below.

A second fundraiser for the family has also been established by the Montana Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association. Info is below:
