(UNDATED) - The Indiana State Police Honor Guard has teamed up with 11 other state police Honor Guard teams to raise money for Hurricane Harvey relief.

During the week of September 25th, troopers from across the nation, including five members of the ISP Honor Guard, attended the 3rd Biennial Honor Guard Conference hosted by the Delaware State Police. Leading up to the conference, Cabela's donated a cooler that was later decaled and decorated with Delaware State Police colors and logos. A silent auction was conducted and the cooler was won by Trooper IV Gabriel Macias of the Texas Highway Patrol.

Attending troopers began trying to develop creative ideas for a way to relay and deliver the cooler to Trooper Macias in Texas. The idea was formed to relay it via multiple state honor guard teams, and in the process coordinate with Cabela's to raise funds to assist sworn and civilian Texas Department of Public Safety employees who were effected by Hurricane Harvey. The plan for all Honor Guard members involved is that when the cooler arrives to Trooper Macias, it will arrive with a full donation to help those who put their personal distress aside and help others effected by the storm.

Today, members of the Kentucky State Police Honor Guard will meet in Louisville with ISP Honor Guard team leaders to exchange the cooler. ISP is working with Cabela's in Noblesville and Hammond to put the cooler on display and give an opportunity for the public to donate to the fundraiser and meet and speak with ISP Honor Guard members.

Anyone wishing to contribute to the fundraising efforts of the hurricane relief can send contributions to: "Indiana State Police Honor Guard, C/O Indiana State Police Alliance, 1415 Shelby Street, Indianapolis, IN 46203".
