Fundraiser For Injured Winnebago County Deputy Nears Goal


An online fundraiser to help Winnebago County Sheriff’s Deputy Stephen Wright, who was shot in the line of duty, has almost reached its goal.

It’s currently at $9,620.  The person behind the GoFundMe account says the money will help Wright and his fiancee with expenses.  They say Lindsay Lengjak had to take time off work to help Wright since he has limited use of his arms.  He underwent two surgeries since the shooting on Sept. 23rd.

The fundraiser has a goal of $10,000.
