INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana (May 1, 2020) – The Hoosier Lottery is celebrating 30 years of helping to build a Safer, Stronger, Smarter Indiana and is recognizing its beneficiaries – retired police, firefighters and teachers – that are continuing to serve our communities in this time of need.

Dave Campbell spent 35 years in public safety and retired in 2019 after 26 years as a firefighter. Now, amid the COVID-19 crisis, Dave continues to serve his community as a hospital hyperbaric chamber tech and as a paramedic. Hoosiers can see more of Dave’s story and other stories like his by clicking here.

Since selling our first ticket 30 years ago, the Hoosier Lottery has been part of the fabric of Indiana,” said Hoosier Lottery Executive Director Sarah M. Taylor. “It has never been more apparent than now, in this current crisis, the importance that police, firefighters and teachers have in our communities. The Hoosier Lottery is proud to support them in their retirement years. By telling their stories, we hope to share our pride for all of our Hoosier Heroes.”

Throughout the month of May, the Hoosier Lottery is celebrating its beneficiaries and telling their stories through marketing efforts with retailers, social media channels, emails, website feature stories and statewide billboards.
