She raised a total of $2,889 for Officer Joe Martino and his K9 Deuce.


This isn’t Kaley’s first time raising a lot of money for local law enforcement.

She’s previously raised nearly $20,000 for the Harrison Police Department.

Her fundraising efforts began after the death of New Kensington Police Officer Brian Shaw, a 25-year-old who was shot and killed in 2017.

When she heard Deuce had come from the Shaw Foundation, she knew what her next fundraising project would be.
