Children get to choose gifts at Walmart in Highlands Ranch

Posted

More than 45 kids in Douglas County got to participate in the annual “Shop With A Cop” event Dec. 14.

County employees nominated the children and their families who were in need of extra help this holiday season, spokeswoman Lauren Childress said.

The event, sponsored by the Highlands Ranch Walmart, allowed the kids to pick out either a gift for themselves or something for a parent or sibling.

More than 50 employees volunteered at the event. The sheriff's office also buys and delivers gifts for about 20 other children who can't participate in the event, Childress said.

“I have done this event several years now and it is one of my most favorite events we do,” she said.

Deputy Cocha Heyden also attended the event for the first time.

“It was very heartwarming to see the connection between law enforcement and the kids in the community,” Heyden said. “The excitement you see in the kids as they shop just makes you feel good to be there with them.”
