CLOVIS (KSMX)- The Christmas Holiday will soon be upon us and the Clovis Police Department as well as multiple assisting agencies are gearing up for the annual “Cops and Kids Christmas Event”. This event is a tradition that local law enforcement look forward to every year.
This event takes place just before Christmas and gives local children an opportunity to go shopping with an Officer or First Responder. Local law enforcement will be accepting donations to reach the goal of sending ten children with $100 each to spend on themselves for the holiday.
The children (aged 3 to 13) selected are under-privileged kids who might not have a chance at receiving gifts unless help is provided. Visit the Clovis Police Department records window and pick up an application to complete it, and return it to the records department.
A panel of officers and civilians will review each application and the children are then selected. Parents/guardians whose child is selected, will receive a phone call and further instructions will be given.
Deadline for applications will be December 1. This event could not occur without donations from individuals and local businesses as well as fundraisers.
Next fundraiser: Serving for tips at Leal’s on Prince, December 3rd @ 5:00 pm.
