WEBB CITY, Mo.– The community is helping the family of a Webb City Police Officer who is battling Coronavirus make ends meet.
Sunday, Ghetto Tacos held a fundraiser in Webb City and donated all food sales to Police Officer Nic Linder and his family of five.
Officer Linder was diagnosed with Coronavirus nearly a month ago.
He recently developed pneumonia, which means he will be off of work for several more weeks.
His wife is thankful for the community’s support during this difficult time.
