Cops, Little Shoppers to Take Over South Cheyenne Walmart Friday
Cheyenne area law enforcement agencies are teaming up with elementary schools in Laramie County to make Christmas a little brighter for those less fortunate.
"Each child is given $100 to shop for themselves," said Beck. "The idea is to have the child shop with a law enforcement officer to build trust with our young people while assisting a family in need."
"Each child is also provided with a complete Christmas meal to take home to their families," he added. "The large food bags are coordinated by spouses of the officers."
Beck says over $9,400 was donated to the program last year, which paid for 37 students to go shopping and countless school lunches for low-income students who otherwise may have gone hungry.
