On Friday, June 4th, Officer Familia responded to a 911 call reporting the drowning of 14-year-old Troy Love in Green Hill Pond, Worcester. Tragically, neither Officer Familia nor Troy Love emerged from the water alive. Worcester didn't just lose a remarkable officer that day; it lost a brother, a friend, and a partner who made a selfless decision and the ultimate sacrifice to save a young life.

Today, we remember and celebrate the life of Manny, a dedicated, loving, and compassionate individual, through The Manny 267 Foundation, established by his beloved family.

The Familia family established this foundation to raise awareness about drowning hazards and the importance of water safety for first responders and the community. Our mission at The Manny 267 Foundation is to raise funds to donate Manny Tubes to police departments nationwide and to provide water safety training for officers and swimming lessons for children, thus preventing such tragedies from occurring again.

In honor of Manny, we invite you to join us in continuing his legacy and making a difference in promoting water safety nationwide.


The mission of the Manny 267 Foundation is to raise donations to be able to donate Manny Tubes to every police department in the nation and to provide water safety training for officers and swimming lessons for kids to prevent this drowning tragedy from ever happening again.
