This holiday season we decided to go above and beyond our normal monthly donation. We were contacted by the Davis County Fraternal Order of Police to see if we would help sponsor the amazing Cops and Kids program and of course, we couldn't turn down helping our community.
Cops and Kids is a program that pairs law enforcement officers with donors to provide a Christmas experience for less fortunate children whose families are financially unable to do so. The children are selected with input from the Division of Child and Family Services, and Davis County School District. All funds provide direct support to children in need, with no administrative costs.
The big day:
Children meet at Applebee’s where they are paired with “Their Police Officer” and are served breakfast.(Donated by Applebee’s.) They then accompany the officers in marked patrol cars with lights and sirens in a police lead parade to their local Walmart Store. Once at the store, an AirMed Helicopter arrives and lands Santa Claus in the store parking lot, as the lights police cars with the children ring the landing zone. The children enter the store with Santa, and shop with the Officer. The children purchase gifts that are wrapped and taken home. Pictures with Santa are provided to the children.
The Davis County FOP was $3,000 short of their fundraising goal for this event and we knew we had to help them reach their goal. Stubbs Dental is proud to donate $3,000 to Cops with Kids this Christmas season. If you are able to help this amazing program please visit www.daviscountyfop.org to see how you can donate.
