Pizza Fundraiser on behalf of Injured Davis Police Officer

Steve's Pizza of Woodland is hosting a fundraiser Thursday (today) to benefit a Davis police officer who lost part of his leg in a motorcycle accident.

The event is sponsored by the Woodland Police Department.
"Twenty-five percent of the proceeds from all dine-in, takeout and delivery orders made between 11 a.m. and 9 p.m. Thursday will go toward the family of Trevor Edens to help with his medical expenses. The restaurant is at 714 Main St. in Woodland.

Edens, 33, lost the lower half of his left leg on Dec. 30, when his personal motorcycle collided with a vehicle at a Roseville intersection. Edens was off duty at the time.

Those wishing to participate in Thursday's fundraiser must present a flier for Edens to receive a donation. Fliers are available at Steve's Pizza, and several officers will be distributing them at the restaurant on Thursday. "
Quick Comments:

What I am going to do is give a check directly to the Woodland Police Department in addition to buying a pizza. After all, any excuse I have to get pizza, I have to take. Plus I want to reward the generosity of Steve's Pizza and help Officer Edens. I hope you can all help out.
