We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

On the morning of October 16, 2022, Lance Corporal D.P. Kugler and Trooper B.M. Stuhmer were on a traffic stop in Greenville County, SC when they were struck by another car in a hit-and-run accident. Both Lance Corporal Kugler and Trooper Stuhmer were taken to Greenville Memorial Hospital. Trooper Stuhmer was treated for non-threatening injuries and subsequently released. However, Lance Corporal Kugler remains in serious condition with critical injuries.

We are raising funds to support Lance Corporal Kugler through his recovery process.

Lance Corporal Kugler is 29 years old and has served with the South Carolina Highway Patrol for 7 years. He is passionate about serving his community, especially related to the prevention of driving under the influence. This summer, Mothers Against Drunk Driving recognized him as one of ten officers in the state for his DUI enforcement efforts. He and his wife, Mandie, share five children and have another child on the way.

Lance Corporal Kugler's recovery is expected to be extensive. This fundraiser is intended to support him and his family during this challenging process, helping to cover medical bills and with other needs associated with his recovery. 100% of the funds raised will be given to Lance Corporal Kugler.


The fundraiser is facilitated by Serve & Connect, a nonprofit (501c3) organization focused on igniting positive change through police-community partnerships. Since 2015, Serve & Connect has raised more than $730,000 for families of fallen officers in South Carolina. Serve & Connect was founded by Kassy Alia Ray in memory of her late husband, Officer Gregory Alia, who was killed in the line of duty on September 30, 2015. This fundraiser is endorsed by the South Carolina Troopers Association, the South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers Association, the South Carolina Sheriffs Association, the South Carolina Police Chiefs Association, the South Carolina Fraternal Order of Police, and the South Carolina Department of Public Safety. 100% of funds raised will be provided directly to L/Cpl Kugler to support his recovery. All donations are tax-deductible.
