KSP and Wal-Mart help area children

Date of News Release: 12/23/2010

(Henderson, Ky.) -- With the excitement of the fast approaching Holiday's, Christmas is a time for reflection and sharing time with family. Unfortunately, there are those who can't share traditional Holiday's with their loved ones because of unexpected illnesses and/or injuries.

The Kentucky State Police and Wal-Mart opted to lessen the burden on area families who will miss this years Christmas. Children who are admitted in area hospitals have received donated toys from Wal-Mart. The gifts were presented by troopers who stopped by to visit the children and families.

Although this could never replace the traditional "at home" Christmas, Wal-Mart saw the need to help families in times of need. A special thanks to all the area Wal-Marts and their respected managers.

Wal-Mart: Owensboro (KY 54); Beaver Dam; Henderson and Morganfield.
