Gig Harbor Police Benevolent Fund Annual Holiday Helpers
Gig Harbor, Wash. – November 30, 2011 – The Jaycox Gig Harbor Police Benevolent Fund, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization will conduct its annual Holiday Helpers event on Tuesday December 6th. This event allows local children in need the opportunity to get to know the Gig Harbor Police officers, Pierce County Sheriff’s deputies, and Washington State Patrol troopers while Christmas shopping at the Gig Harbor Target store.
Each child is provided spending money donated by community members and local service clubs including funding from the Jaycox Gig Harbor Police Benevolent Fund. In addition, the children are provided a tour of the Police Department and lunch with their Law Enforcement shopping buddies.
Children between the ages of seven and eleven are chosen based on social and economic need. This year at least ten children will participate.
Donations are still needed to make this program a success. If you would like to assist, donations are being accepted at the Gig Harbor Police Department.
