Cops for Kids started in 2010 as a means to raise money to give needy children a chance to go Christmas shopping. The first year we raised enough money to take forty-two kids shopping. Last year we took two hundred and forty kids from our county. Kids are paired up with a local Law Enforcement Officer, fed breakfast, and taken to Walmart shopping. Funds for this project are obtained through fund raisers and donations.
We conduct a motorcycle and jeep ride in August. Those are our big fund raising events. We also host some lunch meals throughout the year at different locations. When it comes to the children in our county, the employees of the Sheriff’s office have big hearts! It’s just an awesome experience to be a part of this. For us, it’s all about the kids.
2018's Cops For Kids Event is on December 8th!
