From Alonzo, “I’m seeking funding to use drone technology to help folks come forward with tips. Please expose this effort to people you think may want to make a donation to this cause. I’m only trying to raise $1,500.00 for the cost of the drone & to cover the gas mileage to film the crime scene. I hope that I can get some donations in soon because it has been a very violent summer in the Kansas City area. I want to start this project as soon as possible.”
