New fundraiser will support family of Texas police officer killed in crash
'Hold the Line' campaign from Shield Republic Charities will honor memory of Officer Sheena Yarbrough-Powell
By: Shield Republic
Police Officer Sheena Yarbrough-Powell, age 23, is the latest first responder to be recognized with a "Hold the Line" fundraiser from Shield Republic Charities. Through the fundraiser, the American lifestyle brand will sell commemorative t-shirts, long-sleeved shirts, hoodies, ladies' tank tops and decals for sale, with all net proceeds to be donated to the fallen officer's family.
Officer Yarbrough-Powell lost her life around 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, August 9. She was driving on Cardinal Drive in southeast Beaumont when her vehicle was struck near the Highway 347 overpass head-on by a driver going the wrong way in a Ford Mustang. Her partner, also in the patrol SUV, was injured but is expected to recover.
Officer Yarbrough-Powell was hired as a cadet in August of 2018. By December, she was sworn in and was assigned to 4th Watch Patrol. The newlywed, married just ten months before her death, is survived by her husband.
"We are so disheartened to hear about the tragic death of this promising young officer of the law," said Charlie Romero, spokesperson for Shield Republic. "We know Officer Yarbrough-Powell will be sorely missed and hope that our Hold the Line campaign in her honor brings the Beaumont PD and her bereaved family some comfort as we remember her contributions to her community."
