    Ald. O'Shea Encourages Donations For The 'Get Behind The Vest Fund'
    CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) - A Chicago alderman is encouraging people to support a couple of fundraising efforts to continue replacing outdated bullet-proof vests being worn by some Chicago police officers. A bullet-proof vest would not have saved Cmdr. Paul Bauer's life this week, but Ald. Matt O'Shea knows vests do save lives.

Kean Gas Station at 2632 W. 111th St. in Morgan Park also is donating 5 cents for every gallon sold from Feb. 10 through Saturday to O'Shea's fundraiser. Four other sponsors have agreed to match the station's donation dollar for dollar, he said.

For the past four years, Ald. Matt O'Shea (19th) has hosted a pancake breakfast to raise money to replace outdated bulletproof vests for police officers. The breakfast will be held from 8 a.m. to noon at the Catholic school at 10200 S. Washtenaw Ave. in Beverly.

The pancake house at 10437 S. Western Ave. donates all the supplies to the breakfast each year. In 2017, more than 7,500 pancakes were served, which equates to 45 gallons of batter. Nearly 10 gallons of syrup also was consumed.

    19th Ward pancake breakfast returns to again raise money for bulletproof vests
    Chicago Police Officer Nyls Meredith sat down with a short stack of pancakes as he explained his experience with gun violence. Meredith, a 12-year veteran of the department, was shot in the leg during a foot chase Aug. 29, 2012 near Chicago's Ada Park on the Far South Side.
