Through ‘Hold the Line’ apparel fundraiser for Commander Greg Carnicle, Shield Republic raised money for the fallen officer’s family
Smithfield, N.C. — April 30, 2020 — Shield Republic Charities, the charitable arm of patriotic lifestyle brand Shield Republic, announced today that their apparel fundraiser benefiting the family of a fallen Phoenix, Arizona police commander has raised more than $10,000.
A donation check for $10,648.60 was presented on April 22 to the family of Commander Greg Carnicle of the Phoenix Police Department. The 31-year police veteran was fatally wounded while responding to a domestic disturbance call on March 29 near 39th Drive and Pinnacle Peak Road in Phoenix.
After Cmdr. Carnicle and other officers arrived at the scene, a suspect opened fire, striking the commander. He later succumbed to his gunshot wounds at a nearby hospital.
Over his three decades of service, Cmdr. Carnicle served in roles with the Special Assignments Unit, K9, and evening and weekend patrol operations. The husband and father of four was slated to retire this summer.
Through the Hold the Line fundraiser for Cmdr. Carnicle, Shield Republic sold honorary apparel including t-shirts, long-sleeved shirts, hoodies, ladies’ tank tops and decals. All net proceeds were donated to the commander’s family.
“We wish we could be celebrating Cmdr. Carnicle’s retirement instead of mourning his loss in the line of duty, but we are heartened by the generosity of our community and their love for this hero,” said Charlie Romero, spokesperson for Shield Republic. “We are proud to present this check to his family and hope it comforts them to know that many look upon Cmdr. Carnicle with respect and gratitude for his sacrifice.”
