Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office will help five families this holiday season.
Thanks to a partnership between Wal-Mart, Cedar Country, Little Axe and Slaughterville fire departments and the Center for Children and Families, Inc., the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office will help five families this holiday season.
Wal-Mart stores in Moore and Norman donated money towards gift cards. Each family will receive a gift card to purchase gifts.
CCFI selected families for the event.
Firefighters and deputies will help families shop Dec. 7 at Wal-Mart, 601 12th Ave NE in Norman. The families, firefighters and deputies will meet at CCFI, 1151 E. Main Street in Norman, at 9 a.m. Dec. 7 and convoy to Wal-Mart.
Santa Claus might make an appearance and help with shopping.
Sheriff Joe Lester said he and his deputies look forward to spreading a little Christmas cheer to these families during the holiday season.
“I am proud my deputies recognized a need to help less fortunate families in Cleveland County,” Lester said. “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the Christmas holiday than to help these families provide food and gifts for their loved ones.”
