Yankees' Charity Offers to Pay for Education of Ambushed NYPD Officer's Children

December 22, 2014  | 

The New York Yankees' Silver Shield Foundation is offering to pay for any and all education expenses for the children of Rafael Ramos, one of the two NYPD officers killed Saturday in Brooklyn.

The Silver Shield Foundation was started by James Fuchs and George Steinbrenner in 1982 to pay for the education expenses of all children and spouses of New York law enforcement and other authorities killed in the line of duty.

Walters said the foundation plans to set aside funds Monday for both of Ramos' children, and also said money will be made available to both of the officers' spouses for any education related expenses they might take on, ABC News reports.

Officer Wenjian Liu, 32, the other officer killed Saturday, was married just two months ago.
