Meet Your Neighbors: Bridget & Don.
Cornelius Police Department's #1 fans.
It's hard to say whether or not Bridget and Don Rainey knew the impact they'd have on our community when they first moved to Cornelius. They relocated to our Town in search of a better life for their family. But since they've been here, they've touched the lives of everyone around them, and especially those of our Officers.
Shortly after moving here, one of our officers had been shot in the line of duty. Residents of our Town wanted to help in any way possible, but at the time there was no avenue for giving back to our Police Department.
Recognizing the need for a formal and legal donations process, the Raineys, along with their friends, Mark and Kim Sailors, founded TopDeck and received their IRS nonprofit designation in 2015. Since then, they have created a substantial and much-needed impact in our Town and PD. TopDeck's donations have included Honor Guard uniforms, life-saving QuikClot kits, and most recently, two new dual-purpose motorbikes to be used to access our Town's miles of greenways and trails.
