Bucky Covington Donates Funds for Injured Fire Fighters and Police Officers
Bucky Covington has always been known in Nashville as a "good guy," but now he's taking that to a whole new level. Covington has joined forces with "Help the Good Guys" -- a charitable organization that honors and supports injured fire fighters, police officers and their families.
Over the past several weeks, Covington and the organization have worked closely together to raise funding and awareness for the 130,000-plus fire fighters and law enforcement officers who experience financial crisis due to work related injuries each year.
"’Help The Good Guys’ perform an amazing service for our police officers and fire fighters across the country, and I’m honored to join them in their efforts,” says Covington, who donated a check for $11,607 recently. “It’s rewarding for me to recognize these hard-working men and women and help bring some financial relief to these families in their time of need."
Covington's acts of kindness have exceeded the monetary donation, however. The star has also lent his singing talents to several events that have also benefited the cause, including shows in Birmingham, Ala. and Detroit, Mich. to support the injured heroes in their local communities. Then, on April 21, Covington will hist a special motorcycle ride and concert in Chattanooga, Tenn., which will also benefit injured fire fighters and police officers.
