DOUGLAS COUNTY – The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office in partnership with the Highlands Ranch Wal-Mart, is sponsoring the 4th annual ”Christmas for Kids” event. The event will be held on Saturday, December 12, 2015, at the Store located at 6675 Business Center Dr., Highlands Ranch, CO 80130 (C470/Quebec) starting at 9:00AM.
The “Christmas for Kids” program invites children identified by Douglas County Human Services to shop with Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputies. Donated gift cards are provided to each child, which gives them the opportunity to purchase holiday gifts. Once the children arrive at the Wal-Mart store, they are paired with Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputies for their shopping spree. The goal of the program is to provide less fortunate children a chance to receive holiday presents and to build a relationship with local law enforcement.
Generous contributions for this event have been received from the citizens of Douglas County, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Douglas County Government employees, Wal-Mart, the Castle Rock Rotary Club, and Buffalo Ridge Elementary School.
Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock states “The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is once again honored to have the opportunity to brighten the holiday experience for these families and our deputies truly enjoy shopping with these children. This program allows Wal-Mart and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office to come together, and to help make the holidays a little brighter for several deserving children and families. It’s important that children have positive interactions like this with local law enforcement.”
For more information on how you can donate to this program, please call the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Community Resource Unit at 303-660-7500.
