HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A non-profit that helps wounded members of law enforcement is getting a financial boost to reach even more people.

Wounded Blue is a statewide organization that helps members of law enforcement after they're injured on the job. The group will step in to pay co-pays or other bills if needed.

The group also partners with churches to get ramps built for wheelchair-bound recipients.

Monday, a North Alabama business run by Frank Williams donated $5,000 to the organization.

"Because we are privately funded, we need people to donate, because that's how we're able to respond," said Wounded Blue's president, Freda Muncey. "All of the officers and board members are volunteers. They're not paid for their time or services. To be able to respond, we need great people in the community like Mr. Williams."

"I'm excited that she was courageous enough, her organization, to try to get this off the ground," said Williams. "I hope to help her reach more people, to support the organization."

Wounded Blue is currently helping five injured officers across the state.
