Vail Daily letter: Bringing joy for holidays

I am pleased to announce to our community that the Eagle County Sheriff's Office will be creating their own tradition for this 2016 holiday season as they plan to share a "Shop with a Cop" experience with local children in need.

On Wednesday, Dec. 7, from 4-8 p.m., the Eagle County Sheriff's Office team and its first responders partners will donate their hearts and time to meet with children chosen from local schools to shop for gifts for their families. Each child will be given $100 and be paired with an Eagle County first responder who will help them shop for holiday gifts and spend the evening with the child at the 4 Eagle Ranch, where they will eat dinner, wrap presents and visit with Santa. Each child's family will also be provided with a holiday meal basket to go along with their new gifts.

The Eagle County Sheriff's Office and their first responder partners are very excited to host this event and help bring the joy of the holidays to many local families with gifts, wrapping, food and fun.

If you and your family can help bring the joy of giving to local families in need, please consider a monetary cash donation, wrapping paper, tape, bows or your time. A $100 donation can help to sponsor one child's dream and we are hoping to sponsor at least three children per school in all our unincorporated Eagle County Sheriff's Office areas.

For donations and information please contact:
