Sheriff's office announces fund to support family of Ryan Hendrix

The Henderson County Sheriff's Office and North Carolina Police Benevolent Foundation have set up a website to accept donations to support the family of Sheriff's Detective Ryan Hendrix, who died Thursday as a result of his injuries by an armed suspect.

"While we at the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office will never be able to thank each person individually who has reached out with overwhelming love and support during the tragic loss of Detective Ryan Hendrix, we do want to share with our community how they could donate to the memory of Ryan if so led," the sheriff's office said in a statement.

The Sheriff’s Office has partnered with the North Carolina Police Benevolent Foundation, which is a nonprofit organization, to make the donation process easy. All of the proceeds go directly to the family of Detective Hendrix. Ryan leaves behind two children, ages 9 and 6 as well as his fiancée. This is the only official donation site. Visit the website to donate to the fund.
