Officer Michael Coulon has served the High Springs community as a police officer for fourteen years.
Officer Coulon has a total of seventeen years of experience in law enforcement. He had to take time off of work in 2018 due to an on-duty injury, exhausting most of his paid time off hours.
A few months ago Officer Coulon was working out to maintain his fitness for his job when he tore his rotator cuff.
It took a few months to get him to surgery and the recovery will take even more time.
At this point, Officer Coulon has exhausted all of his paid time off and the community is stepping in.
Each Friday, the Deeper Purpose Community Church members pick a cause in the community to feature and raise funds for.
On Friday, July 12th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. the church will hold a dinner to benefit Officer Coulon.
The event will be held at 18467 Nw Us Hwy 441 Suite 10 in High Springs.
The menu will feature baked chicken, green beans, potato salad, mac n cheese, and desserts.
