A fundraiser for Deputy Mike Costanzo and his family has been established by Serve & Connect, a nonprofit that benefits families of fallen officers and those injured in the line of duty.
Costanzo was seriously injured Wednesday when a passing vehicle crashed into his patrol car and a tow truck on the Don Holt Bridge. Both Costanzo and the tow truck driver were standing on the roadside at the time. The tow truck driver could not be found at the scene. Costanzo remains hospitalized.
Capt. Roger Antonio said this about Costanzo: “Mike is admired for his willingness to help citizens and co-workers, as he selflessly gives so much of his time to others. He is especially close to the students and staff at Sullivan’s Island Elementary School where he serves as a School Resource Officer.”
The Sheriffs’ Office appreciates the outpouring of support from our Charleston County community and others around the country and beyond. All proceeds from this fundraiser will make it to Deputy Costanzo and his family.
Additionally, anybody wishing to send correspondence or other items may send them to:
