Ten-year-old Raises Funds for K-9 Unit

Adapted from stories in the Omaha World Herald

Written by David DeFord

Ten-year-old Annie Tacha wanted to raise $1,000 to help the Hall County Sheriff's K-9 unit purchase a bulletproof vest.

Chief Deputy Chris Rea asked her to consider raising $5,000 for a new dog.

Annie decided to raise enough money for the dog and the vest.

Through car washes, walking dogs, and talking to reporters, she has now raised more that $14,000!

This money will be used to purchase two dogs.

Through her efforts, Annie has inspired other children to raise funds. One unnamed girl brought in $20.50 that she had raised at her lemonade stand.
