The Railroaders donated $500 to the auxiliary unit, which functions as support for sworn police officers. Auxiliary officers assist with traffic and crowd control during large public events, among other duties. The group is funded through donations.
Railroaders also made large donations to the Portage Co. Sheriff’s Office, Boy Scout Troop 284 and the Make-A-Wish Foundation totaling over $2,000.
Funds were raised during the group’s annual model railroad show in Stevens Point.
