Each year at Christmas-time the Shop with a First Responder program assists over 60 students in the county, and involves first responders from the Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Department, Castle Rock Police, Longview Police, Kelso Police, Cowlitz 2 Fire & Rescue, and the Dept. of Corrections. This year Kelso Police will also be sponsoring a Shop with a First Responder at Target. Woodland and Kalama Police are also sponsoring Shop with a First Responder events in their local areas. Stay tuned for specifics on this holiday season’s Shop with a First Responder schedule or follow us on Facebook.
There are opportunities for additional sponsors to assist with providing financial support to provide needy kids with Christmas gifts this year. Send your donation to Cowlitz Chaplaincy or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
