Christmas For Kids
Wednesday, November 22, 2017
This year, to celebrate the Holiday Season, all Fulton County Police and Fire Departments will be implementing Christmas For Kids In Fulton County. This is a Holiday Program which allows first responders a chance to build a positive relationship with children in our communities and spend one-on-one time with those whose families are having financial issues.
The Christmas For Kids In Fulton County program reinforces the idea of sharing and giving, which promotes the idea that role models of all ages are important to the development of our youth. Christmas For Kids In Fulton County hopes to break down the barriers between the community and the first responders with the intent of developing a better and more trusting relationship.
In order to facilitate this program, we are asking for donations to help spread cheer and help these precious children look forward to the upcoming holiday season.
How It Works:
Each child sponsored receives $75-$100 toward shopping
- The children who are selected will meet on December 16th at the Wauseon Police Department around 9:00am where they will enjoy breakfast with the first responders and other children selected, prior to leaving for the event. At approximately 9:45am a convoy of patrol cars/fire trucks/ambulances will transport lights and sirens to Walmart where the children will begin their shopping.
- Each child will receive a Walmart gift card courtesy of YOU, the Sponsors and from private donations. With the help of their first responder escorts, the children can pick gifts for themselves or family members or both. After shopping, the kids will eat a snack and continue to get to know the first responders in their communities.
- Children are encouraged to buy a special gift for themselves and often decide to purchase something for family members.
