Top Stories: Families Of Fallen Officers Get Relief; Texas Nonprofit Offering Access To Donald Trump

Gus Contreras / KERA News

The top local stories this afternoon from KERA News:

The families affected by this summer’s deadly police shootings in downtown Dallas are getting financial help. On Tuesday at City Hall, Mayor Mike Rawlings announced that about $10 million dollars has been raised for the families of the officers killed and injured that night.

Other stories this afternoon:

  • A new Texas nonprofit is offering access to Donald Trump – in exchange for million-dollar donations to unnamed conservation charities, that’s according to the Center for Public Integrity. The nonpartisan investigative news group reports two of the directors have Texas ties.

  • Jessica Cadick, her fiancé and their three kids were in a bad place after last year's Christmas storm. Their rental home was ripped apart and they didn’t have insurance. A lot of what they lost was gone for good. It’s been a tough year for the family financially, and as Courtney Collins reports, they’re still fighting to stay afloat — a year later.
