KSP Post 5 'Shop with a Trooper' Helps 39 Local Children
Date of News Release: 12/17/2013
(Campbellsburg, KY) - State Troopers recently spent two evenings with children from the counties of Oldham, Henry, Trimble, Carroll, and Owen during Post 5's annual 'Shop with a Trooper' program. KSP's 'Shop with a Trooper' program is an initiative providing Troopers an opportunity to impact the lives of children in need during holiday season, while providing children a chance to have positive interaction with State Troopers.
After icy conditions cancelled the event that was set for last Saturday (12/7), Troopers met the children and their parents at the LaGrange and Carrollton Walmarts last Wednesday and Thursday evenings. The children were able to shop with Troopers for toys to fulfill their wish list, while also getting much needed winter clothing.
The success of the program was made possible due to the many businesses and merchants in the Post 5 area donating money and items to the program.
