Letter to the editor: Help make Christmas extraordinary

October 20, 2010 - Dear editor,

The Lake Orion Police Department is planning the third annual Shop with a Hero event to be held at the Oxford Meijer Store in December. This year, we are faced with tremendous challenges to meet our goals that no child in the Orion area is without the miracle and magic of Christmas morning.

Last year, we were hoping to take 20 children shopping. We were amazed and overjoyed that through the donations of so many, we were able to share a shopping trip with 34 Orion children and their families.

This year, times are as tough, or tougher than last year. This means it will be harder to raise the funds to make this program happen, but it also means there are more children, who, without our combined help, may see Christmas morning come and go like any other day.

Please join me and the many uniformed members of the Orion area public safety community in making this Christmas happen for Lake Orion children in need.

Donate if you are able, to the Lake Orion Police Department third Annual Shop with a Hero program.

Donations may be made to the Lake Orion Police Association, at 37 East Flint St. Lake Orion MI 48362. Checks can be made payable to the Lake Orion Police Association, please indicate on the check or the envelope that it is for the Shop with a Hero event.

Thank you for helping us make this the best time of year for every child.


Jerry L. Narsh
