A local bank has set up a fund for donations in the name of Highway Patrol Trooper Colton Beck, who was shot in the face following a pursuit last Friday night in Springfield.
Former Trooper Elan Adams, who’s now a mortage officer at Hawthorn Bank, says the patrol has been inundated with calls from people wanting to know how they can help.
Beck, who has a family that includes two small children, is home resting, but family members say doctors couldn’t save an eye injured in the shooting.
This is a personal account, so all checks and money orders need to be made payable to Colton Beck.
Folks who are able to help can mail checks to Hawthorn Bank 321 West Battlefield Springfield, MO 65807.
You can also bring deposits for Beck’s account into any Hawthorn Bank location. Just ask to deposit the money into the Colton Beck Contribution Fund account.
The bank’s lobby hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m., and the drive-through hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. through 5:30 p.m.
For a night drop, put checks and/or cash in an envelope and make a note to deposit the funds into the Colton Beck Contribution Fund.
