The 2nd annual “Shop With A Sheriff” was held Saturday, December 12th at the Fernley Wal*Mart.
The goal was to raise $1000 to take 10 children and let them spend $100 each. I sponsored a child for $100, so I wanted to be there when the kids went shopping.
The red balloons tied to a shopping cart was the key indicator, along with a uniformed Deputy tagging along. The children varied in age and there was at least one family member along to help the child with selections and advice.
Thanks to our Lyon County Sheriff’s office for taking the time to help these children and giving back to our community.
AND a big thank you to all the people that donated money, we know times are tough for everyone.
