It looks positive as most of the Town staff are on board with Save Our Beach!

"Holidays with the Cops Program" in Leesburg, VA
Leesburg Police Department and Parks & Recreation’s R.O.C.K. Program Sponsor “Holidays With The Cops” Again This Year
Donations gladly accepted to increase the number of children who can participate
During the first week of December, the Leesburg Police Department, in partnership with the Leesburg Parks & Recreation Department’s R.O.C.K. Program, will make this Christmas a little brighter for some of Leesburg’s neediest children.
Each child who participates will be paired up with a uniformed Leesburg police officer and will be given $200 to spend on Christmas gifts. “Holiday With The Cops” will start with dinner for the children and their “shopping buddies” at the Leesburg Police Department. After dinner, the police officers will escort the children to Target, where they will be able to shop to their hearts’ content. In the past, many children have purchased gifts for family members and necessary household items. One child even bought a Christmas tree for his family! Once the children have finished their shopping, volunteers from Leesburg Police Explorer Post # 1041 and Leesburg Police Citizen Support Team as well as Leesburg Police Department dispatchers and staff will help the children wrap their gifts. Members from the Leesburg National Guard Armory will then help transport all the gifts home for the kids.
“Holidays With The Cops is made possible only through the generous contributions of Leesburg businesses and residents. Last year, we expected to raise enough money to take five children shopping,” explained Master Police Officer Chris Tidmore. “Community support was so strong that we were able to take ten kids. This year, we’re hoping to increase that number to at least twelve.”
Donations to the Holidays With The Cops program are tax deductible and can be made by cash, check or PayPal. Checks should be made out to the “Leesburg Police Citizen Support Team” and can be dropped off or mailed to the Leesburg Police Department at 65 Plaza Street NE, Leesburg, VA 20176 (Attention: MPO Chris Tidmore). To make a donation by PayPal, go to www.paypal.com and send a payment to “[email protected]”.
Business sponsors for the 2012 Holidays With The Cops program include Best Buy, Target, La Villa Roma and Palio Ristorante Italiano . Businesses interested in supporting Holidays With The Cops with in-kind or monetary donations should contact MPO Tidmore at 703-771-4564 or [email protected].
