Terminally ill sheriff's deputy wants to take daughter to Disney World

 A terminally ill Maryland sheriff's deputy wants to take his daughter to Disney World, and those who know and love him are trying to make it happen. 

Coworkers and friends are trying to raise money for Somerset County Deputy Chuck Salvas to send his family, especially his 6-year-old daughter, to Disney World.  Simply put, he can't afford to do it. 

So, Salvas' fellow law enforcement officers want to make this happen. They are pleading for donations from the general public, businesses, civic organizations, fire departments, fraternal organizations and anyone else who can donate. 

On Monday, a local church made an $800 donation. So far, $6,000 in all has been collected, and they're hoping for more as Christmas draws closer. 

Checks or money orders can made payable to the Somerset Co. Sheriffs Office c/o Lt. George Nelson. You may put Chuck Salvas Fund in the memo section. 

Donations can be mailed to 30426 Sam Barnes Road Westover, MD 21871 OR dropped off at the Somerset County Sheriff's Office.
