Numerous Local Benefits for Tarentino Family

by | Jun 3, 2016

There has been an outpouring of support for the family, friends, and colleagues of Officer Ronald Tarentino, Jr., the Auburn Police Officer killed in the line of duty on May 22. We could fill pages with the many benefits being organized by businesses and individuals. AMD has decided to create this page and keep it updated and pinned to the top of our website for as long as it is needed.  Hopefully this will serve as something of a repository for information that people can reference if they wish to help out in any way.
