A chance meeting between a Starbucks store manager and Brenda Tiffany (Fallen Trooper Cameron Ponder's mother) has led to an outpouring of assistance from the coffee store chain. When store manager Tanya Price met Mrs. Tiffany and learned about her son's line of duty death, she rallied co-workers and other stores for a special contribution. Starbucks sponsored 'family day' for nearly 300 people including KSP cadets and their families. They provided staff to work the event, coffee, cookies and much more to show support for Trooper Ponders cadet classmates.
