HASKELL COUNTY (KSNT) – A Kansas Highway Patrol trooper and his wife came home from vacation to find they had lost everything.
Trooper Nathan Makings and his wife returned home on Feb. 25 to Sublette, Kan., after vacationing in Texas only to find their home was a total loss, according to the Kansas Troopers Association’s Sage Hill. The couple even lost their pet cat, Maya, to the house fire.
While the investigation continues to look for the cause of the fire, Hill said Fallen Armory is organizing a raffle to benefit the Makings family.
The Fallen Armory group will be raffling off a Black Rain Ordnance 5.56 (Black and Orange) rifle, and a Bersa Thunder .380 handgun (Black in color). Hill said 100% of the proceeds from the Fallen Armory auction will be going to Makings and his family to help rebuild a new home.
The Fallen Armory will be selling raffle tickets for $25. The raffle will take place Monday, March 7. To learn more about the raffle, click here. The group will also accept cash donations if people don’t want to participate in the raffle. For complete rules about Fallen Armory raffles, click here.
