Shop with a Sheriff is a collabortive effort between the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office and Fayette County Schools. Children whose prospect for a joyful Christmas is dimmed by their family’s personal circumstances are identified by school counsellors. We help as many of these children as possible based on the amount of donations we receive. Participating children shop with a Deputy Sheriff at a local store and receive items they both need and want for Christmas. The children often have to be encouraged to shop for themselves as they are busy selecting gifts for their siblings and parents.
Shop with a Sheriff, Inc. is an incorporated 501(c)3 non-profit, therefore all donations are tax deductible.
