Auburn business to donate Monday’s profits to Trooper Bailey Memorial Fund
AUBURN, Ind. (WPTA) - An area ice cream shop is donating profits in memory of a fallen trooper.
The owners of Auburn Dairy Freeze say in a Facebook post they will donate all net profits from Monday, March 6, to the James R. Bailey Memorial Fund.
21Alive News stopped by as customers showed up in droves to support Master Trooper Bailey.
“Nothing that we do here today is going to be able to replace James and we know that,” Owner Joe Reed said. “It’s a little token saying ‘hey, this makes us feel a little better’ hopefully this community comes together.”
The Indiana State Police set up the fund to honor Bailey, who was hit and killed by Terry Dewaine Sands II Friday evening along I-69.
