Shield Republic Charities will pay tribute to Grand Forks police officer Cody Holte through new ‘Hold the Line’ campaign
Smithfield, N.C. — May 29, 2020 — American lifestyle brand Shield Republic announced today that they will run a new apparel fundraiser to remember and honor a fallen North Dakota police officer while raising funds for his family.
Through Shield Republic Charities’ “Hold the Line” campaign, officer Cody Holte of the Grand Forks Police Department will be honored with commemorative apparel, including t-shirts, long-sleeved shirts, hoodies, ladies’ tank tops and decals. All net proceeds from the sale will be donated to Officer Holte’s family.
Officer Holte was killed on duty Wednesday, May 27 during a shootout that occurred at an apartment building at 1267 S. 17th St. as law enforcement professionals were serving an eviction notice. That’s when the tenant opened fire, fatally wounding Officer Holte and a woman inside the apartment.
The 29-year-old officer is survived by his wife and an infant son. In addition to his role with the police department, Holte also served as an Army guardsman and first lieutenant with the U.S. National Guard. He is a native of Hendrum, Minnesota.
“Officer Holte was a dedicated first responder and protector whose life was tragically cut short while fulfilling his calling to serve and protect,” said Charlie Romero, spokesperson for Shield Republic. “We are honored to keep his memory alive while supporting his wife and son through our Hold the Line fundraiser in his memory.”
