The community of Maryville is coming together to support the family of Deputy Greg McCowan as they mourn his loss. The local business, Pokey’s and Sports, has started selling shirts for $20 each to pay tribute to McCowan. All proceeds from the shirts will go directly to the McCowan family and over 500 shirts have already been made.
The outpouring of support from the community has been evident in the orders for the shirts. Julie Nelson, who bought a shirt, expressed the sentiment that everyone wanted to do something to help, and the shirt was something that everyone could contribute to. The management at Pokey’s and Sports has committed to continue printing and selling shirts for as long as people want them.
As people walk through the front doors of Pokey’s and Sports, each order of a shirt represents a connection to McCowan and his family. The community has been deeply affected by his loss, and the support shown through the sale of the shirts is a tangible way for people to express their sympathy and solidarity.
To order online or for an in-store pickup, people can visit the Pokey’s and Sports website. The community’s support for the McCowan family is a strong representation of the caring and connected nature of the people of Maryville.
