ONALASKA, Wisconsin (WXOW) – The community came together this weekend to support an Onalaska police officer whose family has recently fallen on hard times.
K9 Officer Dan McCluskey's wife and son are battling health problems, and the family lost their home and belongings in a fire this summer.
A benefit Saturday raised money for the McCluskey family.
Monday the Onalaska Police Department released a statement from the family. It reads, "The community was overwhelmingly generous. The department and the McCluskey family are extremely grateful. It's heart-warming to live in a community that is this generous and willing to help strangers."
The funds are designed to help the family in any way they choose.
