SANTAQUIN — Multiple businesses are offering fundraisers to support the family of Sgt. Bill Hooser who was killed in the line of duty on Sunday. 

“We are once again humbled by the outpouring of support for Sergeant Hooser and his family,” a post from the Santaquin City Police Department said.

Local owners of Big O Tires in Santaquin, Josh and Abby Hamilton, announced they would donate an entire month profits of oil changes to the Hooser family — a sum of over $15,000. The business sits just above the freeway where Hooser passed away, and was a location he and other officers frequented for oil changes.

“I believe that the community would do the same for my family. That’s what communities do, they stick together especially in hard times”.
