The Dorn Foundation donates $75,000 worth of equipment to the St. Louis Police Department and Fire Department

ST. LOUIS — The Captain David Dorn Foundation has donated more than $75,000 worth of equipment and supplies, including trauma kits, tourniquets, flashlights and boots for first responders.

The foundation was established in honor of Captain David Dorn, a retired St. Louis Police Captain who was killed while protecting a pawn shop in north St. Louis. The incident happened on June 2, 2020, as protests and riots broke out in the wake of the George Floyd protests.

The man charged with his death was convicted by a St. Louis jury in July 2022.

Dorn’s wife, Ann, and his former SLMPD colleague and friend, Gary Foster, established the foundation in February. His job is to provide much-needed supplies, equipment and mental health services to the regional departments.

FOX 2’s Jasmine Huda spoke with Ann, Foster and Jefferson County Sheriff’s Deputy Roger Wackerle about the foundation’s impact on the community and an upcoming dinner fundraiser at the Texas Roadhouse benefiting the foundation.

The Texas Roadhouse fundraiser will be held Thursday, August 18 from 3:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at 805 Arnold Commons Dr.

Customers must present the flyer to donate 10% to the Captain David Dorn Foundation. The flyer can be found below or on the Captain David Dorn Foundation Facebook site. If you would like to donate to the foundation, visit their website at captdaviddornfoundation.com.
