GREAT FALLS -

Northern Energy Propane is sponsoring a fundraiser on Friday, May 19th, to help the family of Broadwater County Sheriff's Deputy Mason Moore.

Deputy Moore was shot and killed while on duty near Three Forks on Tuesday.

On Friday, Northern Energy Propane in Great Falls will reduce the price of propane to 99-cents per gallon, and 100% of proceeds will be donated to the Moore family. 

Northern Energy considers this "a day of respect and solidarity with our officers that run toward harm's way to keep the community safe."

Missoula, Butte, and Townsend locations of Northern Energy will host similar events at their stores.

Northern Energy Propane District Manager Joshua Kelly says he wants to show "overwhelming support for all law enforcement, local, state, and everyone."

Kelly said, "We just want to let them know that we care and what they do every day is a dangerous job. We want to make sure that we show our support when and where we can."

If you would like to show your support, this event will be between 8 am to 3 pm. 

The Great Falls location is at 2431 Vaughn Road. For more information, call 406-454-0647.



Moore was a husband and father of three children. He was a three-year veteran of the Sheriff’s office.

Many people have asked how they can help the Moore family; here are several options:

A church in Belgrade has created a GoFundMe account: "The Bridge church in Belgrade is raising funds forJodi Moore and her 3 children who have tragically lost their husband and father, Deputy Mason Moore, to Tuesday's senseless shooting. Donations will be used to defray costs of funeral and other related expenses."

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office says that the Montana Sheriffs & Peace Officers Association is also accepting donations to help the Moore family. The JCSO says:

Many thanks for the out pouring of love, prayers and support for our law enforcement family. MSPOA is a private non profit 501(c)(3) so donations are tax deductible.

The Broadwater County Sheriff's Office shared the following information:

We at the Sheriff's Office want to thank the community for their love and support shown through this difficult time. I would like to adivse that there is a donation fund for Deputy Moore's family at the Opportunity Bank in Townsend at 416 Broadway Street. Donations can be made to "The Deputy Mason Moore Memorial Fund." If you wish to donate to that fund, it would be greatly appreciated. Again, thanks to all for your support.

The Cascade County Sheriff's Office offered a note of caution to people about potential scammers: 

A note from your Sheriff: Beware of potential scams soliciting donations for the family of fallen Deputy Mason Moore of Broadwater County. A resident of Cascade County received a call today soliciting a donation over the telephone. That resident promptly called our office to check the validity of the call. If you desire to support the Moore family please make your donation directly to Broadwater County Sheriff's Office or to the Go Fund Me Account that has been set up. Thank you, Sheriff Edwards

The Deer Lodge police department says that several people have reported a man calling area residents and claiming he is raising money on behalf of Moore's family.

The caller, who has an accent, says he is from the Montana Law Enforcement Academy (MLEA) and that he is accepting credit card donations.

The MLEA is not soliciting donations for Deputy Moore.
