The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office and Explorers Post 117 are teaming up for another “Shop With A Cop holiday season event.” Children in need were identified by the Escambia County School District and our ECSO School Resource Officers. They will participate in the program which takes place on Friday December 16th at Walmart on Highway 29.
Volunteer deputies will accompany 63 children; 2 per deputy. The students will each receive $200 gift cards for use at the Walmart on that day. It’s a heartwarming sight to watch these children have their holiday wishes fulfilled thanks to a caring community.
Lt. Ken Simmons of the ECSO Community Services division coordinates the program which has been a regular holiday happening for years. A record amount of contributions has been raised this year from community minded business persons and individuals.
