GV Police announce Caring and Sharing program

The Grass Valley Police Officer’s Association has announced its 21st annual Caring and Sharing program.

The program, which began in 1991, is designed to help less fortunate children in our community while building positive relationships between law enforcement, children and their families. Children are referred to the program from community members as well as other public service agencies.

The Wishing Tree will be available in the lobby of the Grass Valley Police Department starting this Monday. Citizens are invited to visit the lobby at 129 S. Auburn St. to take a tag from Wishing Tree. The tags have a child’s name, gender, age and wish-list item. Please remember the new Grass Valley Police Department lobby hours are 9 a.m. to noon and 1-4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Items must be wrapped and labeled and returned to the police department by Dec. 12.

Individuals who want to make a monetary donation can make checks payable to the Grass Valley Police Officers Association.

“Shop with a Cop” will take place the morning of Dec. 15 at K-Mart in Grass Valley. The children will spend a morning at Grass Valley K-Mart shopping with Grass Valley Police officers or Police Department volunteers before receiving breakfast and meeting Santa Claus, who will give them the gift purchased by the community members.

For information, contact Grass Valley Police Officer Jim Amaral at (530) 274-4356.
