Local emergency crews are coming together Wednesday to help a former Wichita Falls police officer with medical bills.

The Wichita Falls Police Officers Association, Wichita County Sheriff's Posse, and the Wichita Falls Fire Fighters Association are hosting a benefit lunch tomorrow on the law of the Wichita County Courthouse.

The lunch will benefit Richard "R.W." Smith -- a 30 year veteran of the police department who is battling cancer. Hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and soft drinks will be sold by donation tomorrow from 11 am to 2 pm.

If you'd like to donate to this event, contact Deputy Melvin Joyner at 940-781-2740, Officer Tammy Rice at 940-867-1096 or Bobby Whitely at 940-733-4273.
