The sixth annual ‘Shop with the Sheriff’ event brings joy to children and families in Cumberland County.
Twenty-three Cumberland County sheriff’s deputies and 15 children went to Target in Carlisle on Thursday evening to “Shop with the Sheriff.”
According to a press release, the sixth annual “Shop with the Sheriff” brings together children and sheriff’s deputies to help them spend (dollar)200 Target gift cards on something they need, something they want, and a gift for a friend for the holidays.
Before going shopping, the kids and their families had dinner with Sheriff Ron Anderson, Deputy Sheriff Jody Smith, and Santa at the US Army Heritage and Education Center.
“Every year, we get the chance to give back to the children,” Cumberland County deputy sheriff Jody Smith said.
“We appreciate the generous donations from our county employees and the community throughout the year, which help make these children’s holidays a little brighter.”
