To all local Delta Junction businesses,
Your very own Delta Junction Alaska State Troopers will be starting a new program for Christmas this year called Shop-With-A-Trooper. What is Shop With A Trooper? The purpose of the event is to help children and families who may be less fortunate. Young kids, K – 6th grade are selected each year during the holiday season to shop at one of the local area stores to purchase gifts for members of their immediate family. Each child is given a small amount of money to spend, normally $100-$200 depending on the size of the child’s immediate family. Approximately 1-2 children are assigned to each State Trooper, who then escorts them around the store and assists in selecting appropriate gifts for each family member. The children are told, and understand, that the money is not for personal use and must only be spent on his or her family members. After shopping, the children will eat lunch, wrap their gifts, and continue to get to know the Alaska State Troopers.
We are asking you to please donate to this good cause. We will be taking the kids shopping December 22nd, so please send your contribution to:
Deltana Community Services Partnership at PO Box 1071 Delta Jct, AK 99737. Please note on the check-Shop with Trooper Program.
All donations must be turned in by December 13th, so that we are able to select how many families will be chosen for the Shop with a Trooper Program.
Thank you for your generous support.
