Six southern Indiana Buffalo Wild Wings locations are taking part in a fundraiser for the family of a fallen Terre Haute police officer.

Officer Brent Long was killed while serving a warrant in July.

For every patron at the chain’s Terre Haute, Plainfield, Clarksville, Lawrence and Evansville who mentions Long’s name, Buffalo Wild Wings will donate 10 percent of the meal purchase price to a fund for Long’s family.

The fundraiser will take place every Monday through the months of August and September.

Terre Haute Police Chief John Plasse says the amount of community support for the department and Long’s family has been overwhelming. The department and the city are working to raise money to build a permanent memorial to Long.
