Local Heroes Make Kids Smile

Hero Helpers 2023

The winter holiday season is not always filled with joy and happiness for everyone. Each December the Blaine Police Department partners with local schools to take children who could use a little extra cheer on a holiday shopping spree at Target. The kids come with a list and are able to buy presents for their entire family. Many kids also come with lists of household necessities, those are taken care of as well thanks to the generous event sponsors. 

This year 60 children were selected to participate. The heroes pick up the kids from school, shop with them at Target, wrap the presents together, and then bring the kids home. This great community outreach event puts a smile on the faces of everyone involved.
