The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office in coordination with Walmart, Faith United Methodist Church, and the nonprofit organization Sunshine Thru The Rain, held the first annual “Shop with a Cop” at the Walmart located on Sawdust Road in Spring on Dec. 14. Sunshine Thru The Rain is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children who have lost one or both of their parents by providing a safe environment for them to express and share their experiences and make new memories.
Twenty children each received $200 gift cards to shop for Christmas. Representatives from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office spent valuable time with each child while they shopped. The kids shopped for everything from toys, to clothing and electronics for their siblings, grandparents, guardians and themselves. Faith United Methodist Church provided breakfast and gift wrapping for all of the presents. This was a great event that we hope continues to be successful in the future.
