Phoenix Lodge 2 supports many individual officers in need, their families, charities, and local organizations. Lodge members along with law enforcement officers from around the state host a variety of events to raise money and awareness to help support local law enforcement officers in need of assistance.
Phoenix Lodge 2 is proud of the events we have hosted to raise money in support of worthwhile causes in support of police officers and their families.

PHOENIX – The Phoenix Fraternal Order of Police has set a fundraising record. $73,000 has been raised for the Joshua Bullis Wounded Warrior Fundraiser.
22-year-old Private First Class Bullis is a triple amputee. He was hit by an explosive device in Afghanistan and lost both legs above the knees and one arm above the elbow.
Josh’s dad and stepmom, “Bub” Bullis and Karen Freund-Bullis, were both Phoenix Police Officers.
Fundraiser and diaper drive for fallen officer’s family (see ABC15)
PHOENIX – The Fraternal Order of Police conducted a day of fundraising for the family of a fallen Phoenix police officer.
We collected both money and diapers at FOP Lodge 2 — located at 12851 N. 19th Ave., at Sweetwater.
Officer Travis Murphy was gunned down in the line of duty in May, leaving behind a wife and two young children.
His widow is left behind to deal with both the loss of her husband and a significant loss of the family’s income.
“Our goal is to try and raise some money to kind of tide them over and help them out — and, not worry about the mortgage payment and things like that — until they can get back on their feet and live some kind of a normal life again,” said Phoenix Police Officer Dave Hopkins.
The FOP served breakfast, lunch and dinner for a $5 donation.
Murphy’s widow, Danielle, was among those at the pasta dinner that raised more than $38,000 to support the couple’s two young children, Kailee, 2, and infant Cody. The officer’s baby boy was born just two weeks before he was shot and killed during a suspicious-vehicle stop in central Phoenix. The lodge traditionally hosts fundraisers for officers killed or injured in the line of duty.
