DU QUOIN, IL (KFVS) -

The Illinois State Police Du Quoin Communications Center, District 13, District 22, Zone 7 Investigations, and Crime Scene Services Command held a silent auction to raise $700 for This Able Veteran, an organization providing service dogs to those suffering from PTSD.

The idea of donating to the organization was suggested to co-workers by Telecommunications Specialist Arleen Simmons.

“We picked This Able Veteran because it is a local organization dedicated to helping Veterans suffering from PTSD with specially trained service dogs,” said Simmons.

The donation was presented by Arleen Simmons and Lieutenant William Sons.
