A fundraiser on Wednesday will honor a San Diego police officer who was killed in City Heights last year.
Just moments before he was fatally wounded in an unprovoked attack last August, Officer Jeremy Henwood performed one last act of kindness; he bought a child food while buying his own dinner.
Phil Palumbo, owner of that particular McDonald’s, decided to partner with the San Diego Police Officers Association to hold a fundraiser honoring Henwood. A portion of the proceeds sold at the McDonald’s on 3879 Fairmount Ave. from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on April 11 will be donated to the SDPOA Widows and Orphans Fund.
The event will feature family-friendly law enforcement activities for children, including appearances by McGruff the Crime Dog, face-painting and historic police cars.
It will be held from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on April 11 at the McDonald’s on 3879 Fairmount Ave.
