Christmas 4 Kids Nears Yearly Goal to Help Kids Get Clothes, Other Essential Items

Posted by wlpo on October 20, 2016

It’s always nice to hear a charity initiative is close to reaching its fundraising goal, especially when it is one that helps children who are in need.

The Christmas 4 Kids program was established by the LaSalle County Sheriff’s MAP 723 in 2005. It helps kids all ages from birth to 16 get clothing, hygiene products, and sometimes school supplies and food. This year, the program is $1,500 shy if its $10,000 goal.

Deputy Felecia Rasmussen has worked with the event every year. She says the program also helps give kids a positive opinion of police.

The last big Christmas 4 Kids fundraiser will be a quarter auction in November at the Streator Moose. If you’d like to donate in the meantime, you can send your donation to the Sheriff’s Office at 707 Etna Road in Ottawa.
