BEAVER DAM, Ky. – (December 21, 2019)–The Kentucky State Police Professional Association (KSPPA) District 16 conducted its annual “Shop with a Trooper” program today. This program is designed to assist children in need during the Christmas season.
Approximately 104 children, KSP troopers and families, local telecommunicators, Beaver Dam Police Department, Hartford Police Department, Ohio County Sheriff’s Department, Ohio County Constables and Kentucky Probation and Parole met at the Beaver Dam Wal-Mart and were paired with these families. Each child were allocated roughly $80 due to generous donations. The shopping lists consisted of several items including coats, pants, shirts, shoes, hats, gloves, and of course…toys!
The Kentucky State Police would like to thank ALL of those who contributed to this much needed program including Ashby Trucking of Beaver Dam, Kentucky State Police Professional Association (KSPPA), Wal-Mart, Jacqulin and Glenda Henry and all those who gave anonymously. Also, a special thanks to Ohio Sheriff’s Deputy Jerry Critchelow and KSPPA District 16 Representative Blake Smith for their integral role in the fund raising efforts.
