Below is a message from the department about the event:
The Huron Township Police Department would like to once again work with deserving children this holiday season with our 6th annual “Shop with a Hero” event.
Last year, we were able to provide a Christmas for six Huron Township children and multiple other well-deserving families. It was and is truly the best day of the year. Huron Township First Responders, members of the community, Huron School District staff and their families volunteered their time to make this happen. Our goal is to make this the best Christmas for children that other wise may not have one.
After seeing our event the last five years, many residents asked us how they could donate to this wonderful cause. We decided to ask our community partners once again for help in this project. Anything will help. We can assure you that every dollar will go towards Huron Township Children and receipts will be maintained.
In 2016, the Huron Township Fire Department joined in this great event, essentially making this a night to “shop with a hero.” We are proud that they will be joining this effort once again.
The goal is to make this happen, not just from the Police and Fire Departments, but from this great community! If we are lucky enough to surpass our goal, the Huron Township Police Department will gladly use extra money help other families in other ways in our community. In that instance as well, all expenditures will be publicly revealed.
Based on the generosity of our residents, we were able to help many more people last year during the holiday season than ever before.
