TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - The Wives of Warriors makes a generous donation to several Mississippi officers.

Last September, the group held their first 5K race to raise money for bulletproof vests. WTVA-TV (https://bit.ly/1KYHQnJ ) reports on Wednesday they provided a vest for officers selected from 16 different agencies in nine Mississippi counties.

The vests costs anywhere from $500 to $1,000 each.

A group member, Kim Rushing, says they want every officer in the world to have a bulletproof vest so they will be as safe as possible and can return home to their families after working to protect and serve.

The Wives of Warriors will be hosting another 5k in September.
