Cops, Little Shoppers to Take Over Cheyenne Walmart Friday
Cheyenne area law enforcement agencies are once again teaming up with elementary schools in Laramie County to make Christmas a little brighter for those less fortunate.
Wyoming Highway Patrol Sgt. Jeremy Beck says 31 students will get $150 to "Shop With a Cop" at the Walmart at 580 Livingston Avenue this Friday, Dec. 17.
"The idea is to have the child shop with a law enforcement officer to build trust with our young people while assisting families in need," Beck said in a news release.
"The children are also provided with a complete Christmas meal to take home to their families," he added.
Beck says more than $6,100 was donated to the program in 2019, which paid for 31 students to go shopping and countless school lunches for low-income students who otherwise may have gone hungry.
